She is happy that microblogging site Twitter locked the filmmaker's account for the content, and made him delete his tweet.
"It is not about me. I see this as an attack on women who are calling for solidarity for rape survivors. The nun in Kerala has been very brave in coming out with this story. Instead of supporting her, to use her ordeal to mock it and abuse and slander another woman -- it's just petty, hateful, insensitive and frankly quite sick," Swara told IANS.
To this, Agnihotri replied with a post in reference to the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment and sexual assault. He posted: "Where is the placard #MeTooProstituteNun?"
Swara then expressed her anger with a post which read: "Vivek, just want to point out that you are using the trauma of women who are rape survivors to slut shame and abuse in public a woman you don't like. In the rare moments of sanity that may visit your brain -- otherwise unhinged with hate- think about how low that is."
"I'm really glad Twitter India took action and locked his account and made him delete his tweet. We shouldn't tolerate indecent and abusive bullying of women on our public platforms," she said.
