Sonam blasts Instagram for refusing to remove threat against sister
She shared the app's response to an abusive comment reported by her sister Rhea, on Instagram Stories.
According to a report in Hindustan Times, actor Sonam Kapoor has slammed Instagram for refusing to remove death threats against her sister Rhea Kapoor. She shared the app's response to an abusive comment reported by Rhea, on Instagram Stories.
"Instagram doesn't think death threats is a violation or their India team can't read Hindi," Sonam wrote with the screenshot. Instagram had replied to Rhea's report saying that the abusive comment wishing 'death' upon her, did not go against their community guideline. They said that she could unfollow, mute or block the person.
Rhea wrote, "Of course I will block this individual but are you doing your part to keep the 'community' safe?" She also shared a screenshot of the comment that read: "Tu toh kutte ki maut maregi din (You'll die a dog's death someday)." Rhea added, "Just charming. Of course I am happy to block unnecessarily hateful people without giving it a thought but what pisses me off is that a death threat isn't against your 'community guideline' Instagram?"
Sonam has been at the receiving end of a lot of hate online since the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
