Popular singer Chinmayi Sripada has been one of the most active voices of the MeToo campaign and has made allegations against seven-time National Award-winning lyricist Vairamuthu for sexual harassment. Ever since 2018, Chinmayi has been spearheading the MeToo movement in Tamil Nadu and happens to be active on her social media pages by speaking about the campaign on a regular basis. Now, Chinmayi has shared a story about the 23 years jail sentencing of Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein yesterday after he got convicted on charges for rape and sexual assault.
Taking to her Twitter page, Chinmayi tweeted saying, "Harvey Weinstein sentenced to 23 years in Prison. This is the time he'd wish he were born in India. Especially in Tamilnadu. He'd have been partying with stars, politicians and have odes written. You'd actually be supported by political parties 100%,". Check out her tweet below:

To the women who thundered on and sent Harvey Weinstein to jail.— Chinmayi Sripaada (@Chinmayi) March 11, 2020
To the media and people who stood with the women and didn’t ask “why so late?”
It gives hope.
You are our heroes.
Chinmayi then released a detailed statement in which she mocked Harvey Weinstein in a sarcastic manner saying he should have said, "I'll save Tamil and write Tamil poetry", which would eventually fetch him a lot of support. She also compared the disgraced Hollywood producer to veteran actor Radha Ravi saying, "He gave a speech urging people to rape. This was not even 2 weeks after Nirbhaya and people clapped to that then", after which he also would be given a BJP membership. Check out Chinmayi's statement in its entirety in the tweet below:
