Samantha Ruth Prabhu talked about the negative comments she gets on social media and said that while she doesn’t expect ‘unconditional acceptance,’ she does want people to be more ‘civilised.
Actress Samantha Ruth Prabhu has commented on the negative social media discourse that she sometimes attracts, following an eventful year both personally and professionally. Samantha is the cover star of the latest issue of Elle magazine, and she talked about the hate she gets on social media in the accompanying feature.
She stated, “I don’t demand unconditional acceptance.” “I encourage people to have differing points of view, but we can still love and care for one another.” I only ask that they express their dissatisfaction in a more civilised manner.”
Samantha kicked off the year with a critically acclaimed supporting role in Season 2 of Amazon Prime Video’s The Family Man.
She portrayed a Sri Lankan Tamil rebel fighter who clashes with Srikant Tiwari, played by Manoj Bajpayee. Samantha was the target of a lot of the pre-release backlash directed at the show.
Samantha and her husband Naga Chaitanya announced their separation in October, confirming rumours that had been circulating for weeks. She responded with an Instagram statement a week later, lashing out at the online backlash. Samantha slammed the “false rumours” about “abortions” and “affairs” that circulated in the days after Chaitanya’s separation announcement.
I’m overwhelmed by your emotional investment in a personal crisis. Thank you all for your deep empathy, concern, and for standing up for me in the face of false rumours and stories. They accuse her of having affairs, never wanting children, being an opportunist, and now having abortions,” she said. “A divorce is a traumatic experience in and of itself. Let alone giving me the opportunity to heal. This personal attack on me has been relentless.
But I promise you, this, or anything else they say, will never break me,” she added.
