On Tuesday, the trending topic in India was not only the arrest of Rhea Chakraborty by the NCB but also a quote that goes:
“Roses are red, violets are blue, let’s smash the patriarchy, me and you”.
Many celebrities, including Sonam Kapoor, Farhan Akhtar and Zoya Akhtar have shared the same as posts on their social media handles with the hashtag #JusticeForRhea intact.
With the trend, the celebs are calling for an unbiased trial for Rhea and lessen the hounding done by media on a regular basis. And if you are wondering who started this trend, then it’s Rhea herself.
During one of her hearings, the actor wore the T-shirt with the same text. And ever since, it is all over the media.
The less we see patriarchy in Rhea’s case, but we surely believe that media channels must work in their senses and respect the mental health of the person who is going through a lot right now.
