#TimesUp: A Page Collecting All Major Harassment Stories From India

2 min

Indians, mostly women, have decided to out prominent men and women for the harassment and abuse they have been doing. From sending unsolicited photos of genitals to asking for nude photos, from touching thigh to sexually abusing the women, from sending vulgar texts to asking for sexual favors, these stories are heartbreaking!

Most of the predators outed so far on social media hail from comedy scene, media and entertainment industry. While, most of the new-age media companies have chosen to remain silent, we have decided to bring all stories on one page. We have made a list of all harassment stories and responses from the alleged (if shared in public domain) and put it here. This page is updated live, time to time.

(You can send your story to us on editor@buddybits.com with subject line “Times Up”. We may only cover stories that look legitimate to us. If you are alleged in any of the stories and believe it is a wrong allegation, feel free to write to us.)
