This is the slogan that Rhea's T-shirt had on the day she was arrested by the NCB. Many celebrities have replicated the slogan on their social media platforms in support of the actress.
Sonam Kapoor tweeted, “Everyone loves a witch hunt as long as it's someone else's witch being hunted. Walter Kirn.”
Swara Bhasker gave an interview to an Indian media outlet where she claimed Rhea was being made a ‘scapegoat’. She also said, “Sushant was not a struggling actor. Sushant’s suicide should have triggered a conversation on stigma around mental health.”
Farhan Akhtar on Instagram replicated the message that Rhea Chakraborty wore on her T-shirt the day she was arrested by the NCB - ‘Roses are red, violets are blue, let’s smash the patriarchy, me and you.’ He didn’t caption the picture, but used a raised fist emoji used as a symbol of resistance or defiance.
Shibani Dandekar, host and actress, is known to be a close friend of Rhea. She replicated Rhea’s T-shirt message with the caption #justiceforrhea.
Taapsee Pannu has been very vocal in her support of Rhea. She tweeted in reference to a media report, “Correction. She wasn’t consuming. Financing and procuring for Sushant. So in that case if he was alive he would’ve been put behind bars too ? Oh no. She must’ve forced the drugs onto him. Sushant must’ve been force fed marijuana. Yes that’s what it is exactly. We did it guys.”
Vidya Balan hashtagged #JusticeForRhea as she replicated the message, “Roses are red, violets are blue, let’s smash the patriarchy, me and you.”
