Singer Chinmayi always finds her place in controversies. She is best known for her outspoken nature about feminism and women's rights. Some of her debates raise valid points. But sometimes, Chinmayi seems to go overboard to put her personal opinion without thinking about repercussions. Since morning, there is a fan war going on between the fans of Samantha and Pooja Hegde. Amidst this issue, Chinmayi posted a tweet supporting Samantha. Earlier, Chinmayi raised her voice against the fan wars. Now, the netizens are questioning her double standards on the issue.
Earlier today, Chinmayi tweeted, '#TeamSamantha.' This was the hashtag that is being trended by Samantha fans on social media. After this tweet, the netizens dug out old tweets of Chinmayi. Once, she tweeted, 'It is high time the actors addressed their fans to stop abusing on social media and make ugly hashtags trend. #StandAgainstAbuse.' Less than a month ago, Chinmayi made another tweet on fan wars. She wrote, 'This fan war abuse is an Indian epidemic. I am yet to see people who call themselves fans, or paint themselves as someone's fans while they are 'rival' fans indulge in such abhorrent, psychopathic behavior.'
Now, the people are questioning these double standards of the singer. They asked her is she supporting fan wars only because of her friend Samantha. On the other side, a few other suggested her to delete the tweet. They said that it will indirectly legitimize the trolling faced by the celebrities involved in the issue.
