It is about the year 2018. When Chinmayi called lyricist Vairamuthu a sexual predator during the #MeToo movement. She had revealed that the lyricist molested her when she was new in the industry. After this, 17 more women also accused Vairamuthu of sexual harassment. Now on May 29, 2023, Chinmayi wrote a long post.
She wrote a long tweet to MK Stalin and DMK’s Kanimozhi explaining how Vairamuthu used his political connections to silence many women. He also pointed out that the rules should be the same for Vairamuthu and Brij Bhushan, who allegedly sexually assaulted seven female wrestlers.
Appeal to the Chief Minister
Chinmayi wrote in the tweet, ‘The rules cannot be different for Brij Bhushan and Vairamuthu. Our champion wrestlers and the pride of the country including a minor have taken the name of Brij Bhushan. More than 17 women have taken the name of Vairamuthu. who have used your party and close ties to you, to silence me and others and ruin the careers of talented and dreamy women. His genius is not greater than all of us. This is happening right under your nose.’
That’s why now Chinmayi Shripada said
He further said, ‘Please take necessary action, so that the place of work can be safe all over Tamil Nadu. I am speaking as someone who has been ostracized by the industry because people are afraid to speak against it because of its political connections. Speaking to India Today TV, Chinmayi said, ‘I have decided to speak now because it is the right time. Had it not become a people’s movement, I would not have had the courage to speak up and would have buried it inside myself. When Vairamuthu did this, I was unaware of it. My mother wanted to save me from this. She told Vairamuthu’s manager that she will take care of my career and even if I don’t have a career, it’s a good thing.
