With the MeToo movement gaining more support by the day, many common people and celebrities have begun sharing stories of the trauma they had encountered in the form of sexual harassment and sexual assault with singer Chinmayi yesterday (October 8) tweeting how two anonymous singers faced a similar outcome at the hands of reputed lyricist Vairamuthu.

That said, actress Samantha has now tweeted her support for the MeToo movement hailing the women who have stood up.
(1/2)I am so happy that more and more women are finding the strength to say #MeToo . Your bravery is commendable . I am sorry though that some people ,even other women themselves will shame and burden you with the question of proof and doubt. Just know that you are saving— Samantha Akkineni (@Samanthaprabhu2) October 9, 2018
