August 03 : Director Hansal Mehta locks his Twitter profile, but not before dolling out a series of tweets, slamming media and fans over hounding Rhea Chakraborty in Sushant Signh Rajput’s sudden demise.
Hansal took to his Twitter profile and slammed the fact that actress Rhea Chakraborty is being subjected to media witch-hunts, which is not right, the matter is being investigated by authorities and they will decide guilty or not.
Mehta wrote, "God forbid if the girl being accused and being subjected to a trial by media does harm to herself"
Continuing in the same tweet, he named a news anchor, and wondered whether the news anchor and "all the politicians and all those invited on these media witch-hunts be held accountable" if Rhea harmed herself.
"Let her guilt/innocence be proved in a court of law for heaven's sake," he concluded.
Further adding, "Last evening I met people with no remote connection to the film industry making sweeping statements and playing judge. Result of an exploitative and conscienceless media that conducts its own banana court for its own vested interests. At whose cost?"
"Suddenly people have become experts on mental health, black magic, legality and ethics. There are experts whose job it is to ensure healing, fairness and justice. Members of the media, friends are NOT experts or even remotely competent to examine the case"
Post this he blocked/locked his Twitter profile.
According to reports, Rhea, who has been missing over the past few days, reportedly left her building in the middle of the night along with her family.
