When I shared my Me Too story two years ago, I was shamed and humiliated – Adhyayan Suman

Looks like the #MeToo movement is here to stay and why not? It’s gaining momentum in India with more and more people speaking out against the men and women who have sexually harassed them. Many big names are coming in the light, many men from the industry and media have stepped down from their positions.

Amidst of all this Adhyayan Suman posted a series of tweets pointing and questioning the credibility of this movement. As per Adhyayan he also had voiced his #Metoo story two years ago, but he was shamed and humiliated. Adhyayan had opened up in an interview to one of the leading news papers in India about his relationship with ex-girlfriend Kangana Ranaut. He had shared that Kangana slapped him and repeatedly abused him. He accused Kangana of being physically violent and shared an incident where she threw her stilettos at him. He talked about the trauma he went through during and after the relationship in that interview.

His tweets read, #MeToo is a movement empowering men and women alike to come out in the open and speak up. My tweets were a way of reaching out to all the people who wanted to be heard and not to gain any publicity in this hot debacle. I spoke up 2 years ago and I was shunned , criticized on national tv. I wasn’t believed then and I don’t want to waste time retelling a story already out for the public to read . To all the media houses calling me and asking me to speak up in an interview,I do not wish to. I didn’t have ur support then and I definitely don’t need it, now when I’ve left my past behind and moved on, a stronger man. Thanks.
