#MeToo: Actor Divya Gopinath comes out against Alencier
While the #MeToo campaign is taking on the world by storm, more and more women are coming into limelight speaking up against the assault they underwent in their workplace.
Lately Aabhasam movie fame Divya Gopinath has come out against actor Alencier Ley Lopez with strong accusations of sexual harassment at the sets of the film.
She had earlier written an anonymous letter through a twitter handle ‘India protests’ but now she has revealed herself as there were many allegations against the post terming it as baseless just because of its anonymity.
She shared a video through her Facebook page describing the situation she was in and why she decided to speak up and identify herself.
She said she finally managed to talk to her parents about the same and decided to end the anonymity because it was necessary.
In her video she said, “The situation was hard, I couldn’t share it with anyone, not even my family. I am working in a field which I chose on my own and was fighting for my dreams. I decided to end the anonymity because the man I accuse of harassing was proud about his deed and was talking high about it to everyone. I happened to know about it and felt insulted. I called him over and he was saying sorry for what he did and claimed it happened in some kind of mental trauma. I actually believed him but I was wrong.”
She also said that she complained about the same to WCC and they have asked to meet her in person. Only then she came to know that he had done this before to many women in many sets.
Alencier who has acted in many films hasn't still responded to the allegations against him.
