Singer Chinmayi has made severe allegations against famous Tamil lyricist Vairamuthu. She accused him of harassing her sexually. Exposing him in the #MeToo movement, she mentioned in detail the harassment she faced from the poet. Later several other victims had also opened up and accused him of harassing them.
She now took to social media to share another woman’s #MeToo complainant against him. Chinmayi, in her tweet, said this is the 17th such complainant. Yet, Vairamuthu is not responding to allegations or making any statements.
Considered as one of the greatest poets in Tamil, Vairamuthu won national awards for his evocative lyrics. #MeToo allegations have tarnished his image and reputation. But the poet continues to keep mum on this issue.
Chinmayi, on the other hand, has not given up her fight against the poet.
The #MeToo movement was at its peak in 2018, but it subsequently subsided.
