Sunny Leone has recently joined an NGO named Akancha Against Harassment, which fights back against online abuse and cyber harassment. The actress shares her personal experience with cyber bullying. She narrates the incident in a conversation during an interview.
In the conversation, Sunny revealed, “Someone threatened me, telling me he’d come to my house to cause harm. Daniel (Sunny’s husband) was not in the country and I was frightened, because I was living alone. I would hear noises outside my house and walk towards the door with a knife in my hand.”
The actress even had a social media user arrive at her house banging on her doors. She said, “He started banging on my door. That his Twitter followers had also bullied me, made me fear that a mob would turn up and break into my house.”
“We changed our house later, but this incident still affects me.” Cyber stalking and harassment, Leone points out, has been a
pertinent issue across the globe.
According to Sunny, we should focus on this issue and provide help, as she says, “Young girls and boys go through depression because they are bullied. Many even end up committing suicide. I don’t know if this will end, but, we can create awareness about it. Thankfully, people have been supportive towards me, and, I am strong, but not everyone can say that. We need to help them.”
We are with you, Sunny . 🙂
