"you don't know how to dress in public."
Amyra Dastur angrily slammed a troll for accusing her of inciting “rape”.
The actress had posted a video on Instagram in March 2021. She and a friend took part in the ‘Don’t Rush’ challenge.
In the video, she and a friend are seen wearing white tops and denim shorts.
The pair strut together before dancing in sync with each other.
The video garnered over five million views and many viewers loved the video.
One person wrote: “It’s fire but more than that how do you manage such steps in heels.”
Another said: “Wow your dance moves are so amazing and absolutely mind-blowing.”
A third posted: “Y’all are killing it and how.”
However, there were negative comments and despite the video being out for more than a month, one person has now made shocking comments towards Amyra.
Not only did the troll criticise her choice of outfit, but the hater also claimed that Amyra was inciting rape.
The comment read: “This is why girls get raped because you don’t know how to dress in public.
“You really don’t need to wear really short shorts.”
However, Amyra hit back at the troll, stating that mentalities like his own are the reason why women are sexually harassed and raped.
She replied: “It’s because of sickening mentalities like yours that women get raped.”
Amyra went on to say: “Men like you are the ones who encourage this kind of thinking!
“The guts you have to even write this proves you weren’t raised properly.
“Don’t tell women how to dress, teach BOYS to respect women and MEN to NOT RAPE! Sicko!”
Her reply seemed to have shut down the troll as he did not follow up his initial comment afterwards.
