Furious at Instagram, Sonam Kapoor lashed out at the platform recently to remove death threats made on the app against her sister, film producer Rhea Kapoor.
Sonam took to her Instagram Stories to share screenshots of the app’s response to an abusive comment reported by Rhea.
“Instagram doesn’t think death threats is a violation of their India team can’t read Hindi,” Sonam wrote with the screenshot. Instagram had responded to Rhea’s report saying that the abusive comment wishing ‘death’ upon her, did not go against their community guideline. They suggested that she could unfollow, mute or block the person.
Here’s the post:
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?”
Not only this, earlier this month, Sonam had lashed out at trolls and shared the hateful messages she had been receiving online. She is one of the many celebrities attacked by people after the death of Sushant Singh Rajput.
