He wrote, ‘Today marks 1 month of protests by athletes of the wrestling fraternity. Instead of fighting for national glory, we have forced them to fight for personal safety. Fellow Indians ,who deserves our attention, our national sporting icons or a politician with an extensive criminal history? I stand with my champions. Wrestlers protest’ (sic).”

Chinmayi criticises his tweet

“5 years of a singer in Tamil Nadu being banned for naming a molester right in front of their eyes and not a pip about it since the poettu has their respect. How does one trust politicians who speak for women’s safety while they ignore harassment right under their noses? Just. Asking. Now while my timeline will blow up with abuse, shouting and yelling imma gonna exit. Buhbye (sic).” Chinmayi tweeted in response to Kamal Haasan’s tweet.

She additional tweeted, “Needless to say there is soooo much anger. So many Kamal Haasan supporters ask me the same survivor-shaming questions that those opposing our Indian wrestlers have said. The playbook to shame women who name powerful molesters is the exact same… I had all the right to question an actor, who is now a politician to clean up the yard he artistically ruled and it make the space safer for women like me to speak up. Not be incarcerated for it. It was a simple ask. My case has been going on and on and on since November 2018 with multiple people from the Film Industry shaming me for speaking up…”

In 2018, Chinmayi was one of many first ladies from the movie business to open up about her Me Too story after she shared a thread on Twitter concerning the sexual abuse she confronted over time. She referred to as out lyricist Vairamuthu for sexually harassing her, when the 2 have been in Switzerland for a live performance titled Veezhamattom in 2005. Vairamuthu had then launched a press release denying all allegations, Chinmayi had then reacted by calling him a liar.

Following her allegations on Vairamuthu, Chinmayi was axed from the South Indian Cine, Tv Artistes and Dubbing Artistes Union. Her ban is but to be revoked.
