Kollywood stars vs Political leaders

For the past few days, there is a huge controversy on social media as Thalapathy Vijay fans allegedly abused a lady journalist after she criticized actor's flop film Sura (2010). The issue went on to become a viral topic on National media.

When senior politician Stalin sent a statement condemning the act of fans abusing a woman, now Thalapathy Vijay has issued a press statement.

“I am someone who respects women a lot. Everybody has the right to criticise anyone’s film. It is my view that no woman should be spoken of in a demeaning way for any reason or any time. Everyone has to praise womanhood" said Vijay in his statement.

Point to be noted here is the actor did not even mention the term 'fans' or the name of the journalist.
