In yet another case of moral policing and cyberbullying has happened in Kerala, a couple was trolled online for an intimate post-wedding photoshoot.
Rishi Karthikeyan tied married Lakshmi on September 16. In order to celebrate their love and commemorate their wedding, the couple came up with the idea of a post-wedding photoshoot. They hired a photographer friend and set off to Idukki’s tea gardens.
Photos were meant to celebrate Rishi and Lakshmi’s relationship in a fun yet intimate style. And yet, no sooner did the couple post the images on social media, the trolling began. The photos, in which couple appear to only be draped in white sheets while playfully running through tea fields, ignited some conservative minds the wrong way.
“On the internet, they slut shamed me and insulted my family and posed questions such as ‘are you wearing clothes underneath?,” Lakshmi told TNM.
