After actor Trisha tweeted about the vitriolic and sexually abusive posters and memes that are doing the rounds about her, support has been pouring in from her colleagues in the industry, including those who support Jallikattu.

Trisha, who has had a long association with PETA, the animal rights organisation behind the Jallikattu ban, has come under fire on social media and off it.

On Friday, protesters stormed into the sets of Garjanai in Sivagangai where Trisha was shooting, forcing the actor to take refuge in her vanity van. The protesters shouted slogans and threatened that they wouldn't allow the film to be shot anywhere in Tamil Nadu.

Following the actor's tweets about the incident and the abuse that she has been facing, industry insiders like Silambarasan, Kamal Haasan, Chinmayi, Radikaa Sarath Kumar, and Arvind Swami have come forward to express their disagreement with the turn of events. 

Kamal Haasan, who has been vocal about supporting Jallikattu, called for decency and said that indulging in such slander would only weaken the case. 

 

 

Arvind Swami pointed out that bullying people for having an opinion was against democracy.

 

 

Earlier in the day, Chinmayi and Radikaa too had tweeted in support of Trisha.
