Actor Arjun Kapoor has always been a pillar of support to his family, especially sisters Anshula Kapoor, Janhvi, Khushi and cousin Sonam Kapoor. As a brother, he has protected them from trolls and lashed out at haters for their ferocious comments and abuse. He came through once again when Anshula was attacked online. Arjun Kapoor and Janhvi Kapoor were recently in Koffee with Karan Season 6 and it all started there.
Anshula was attacked with rape threats for not helping Janhvi with a question on Karan Johar’s chat show. Janhvi had called Anshula for help, as she needed to win the hamper on the show. Anshula wasn’t able to answer the question, and Arjun won the hamper. Haters started sending her angry hate messages and rape threats. This made Arjun extremely angry and he finally lashed out.
Furious about this, Arjun took to Twitter and wrote:
Something I assumed was an absolute non issue on Koffee with Karan has escalated into @anshulakapoor being abused & I can’t be bothered by protocol anymore. F**k all those trolls who wish harm to my sister. I hope ur mom or sister never have to go thru what u have put us thru…

Supporting the actor, Karan Johar also tweeted and said that it was senseless.
I completely agree with you Arjun! Was a harmless fun game and did not warrant this response! People genuinely need to stop this intense negativity…. https://t.co/XITqp1mN6A

Janhvi expressed her views on the issue during an event:
“You want to protect the people in your life. Like for example my sister actually just recently got trolled on social media. She did something silly on Koffee with Karan and started getting like rape threats and stuff. And it was just weird to me.”
She posted a picture on Instagram after the trolling with the caption – to the first but clearly not the last roller coaster we’ll be on together. I love you ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️⚫️⚫️⚫️
Janhvi further added:
“As people are faceless on social media, they feel they can have opinions that sometimes cross a moral line. So when I put stuff that’s personal up on social media, I do think of that too. I feel protective towards them… what people might say about them or about my equation with them. You tend to be guarded.”
This is one another example of a stupid trolling incident against a celebrity. Anshula Kapoor was unnecessarily dragged into the controversy and rape threats? This is complete non-sense and Arjun has rightly lashed out against the haters.
