"you people just want a chance to judge."
Gungun Gupta made a semblance of a reaction to an unfortunate incident on Instagram.
She was in the headlines in November 2023 when an explicit video of her went viral without her consent.
The 19-year-old woman is a popular Instagram influencer. She has amassed 6.1 million followers on the platform.
Gungun has gained fame for lip-syncing songs. She also posts dazzling pictures of her in bright clothes and sarees.
However, the online star was embroiled in a scandal when she exposed herself to a male caller.
In the viral clip, Gungun removed her top and lowered her trousers.
She also performed various sex acts for the man.
The person on the other end of the call is allegedly Deepu Chawla, believed to be Gungun Gupta’s boyfriend.
Gungun received both support and criticism from various people in the wake of the leak.
The influencer posted a note on her Instagram Story and seemingly addressed the matter.
She wrote: “Stop it, all. I’m not strong enough. I want to tell you all everything in a bit of time.
“Or people who do all these edits just for views and defamation but do not think that all these things destroy a person’s life.
“And then you people just want a chance to judge but it doesn’t matter.
“I am having a bad time right now.
“The people who love me are enough for me.
“Hope you people are happy for Diwali. Stay happy.”
Gungun Gupta did not directly mention the scandal, though it was clear what she was referring to.
Her words suggested that edits were made to the clip.
However, it was tragic that such a controversy materialised in the first place.
Gungun’s comment about judgement is important as she is not the only social media personality to fall victim to such a scandal in recent times.
Aliza Sehar was also embroiled in a scandal that culminated in kidnap rumours.
Similarly, sexual assault survivor and influencer Ayesha Akram was leaked when she unintentionally exposed herself to a man.
When Gungun’s video was leaked, she garnered support from fans.
One user commented: “My hearty condolences to Gungun Gupta.
“Please do not share links/images or make fun of whatever tragic incident happened lately.
“She is a young girl and it was her decision of whatever mistake she made.
“Don’t troll her guys. Whatever is done is to let go.”
Gungun Gupta should be commended for speaking out about such a shocking incident.
