    .....And the backlash continues
    Mumbai  -  

    Mumbai- We just celebrated women's day on 8th march. But it seems getting dignified treatment at work seems still an illusion for urban women. Latest to add to the list of offenders is Arunabh Kumar, CEO of the digital entertainment startup ‘The Viral Fever’ (TVF), who is accused of indecent comments and harassment towards a female employee. 

    Though Arunabh proclaims he is been declared offender by social media and not by the law, several other women have come forward to support the allegations against him on the social media, most of them calling for the boycott of TVF.

    From a team that has delivered brilliant content, they needed a better media statement. #TVF

    If the mandatory #Vishaka guidelines had been followed, #TVF would have announced an 'investigation' and not a 'severe justice' warning. pic.twitter.com/0SIEo1mMNN

    On the other hand, Arunabh's colleagues cum friends from TVF who have had a long association with him have shown their support on social media platform. They seem to deny the accusation proving that Arunabh is innocent. 

    I categorically say that i know no such woman and i haven't made any remark like that.

    It makes for a great fictional story. I'm sure more anonymous 'ex-TVF' employee stories will drop in.

    5 yrs at TVF & no memory of who this Female employee is. It's a baseless fictitious allegation. Haters pls don't stoop down to this level :(

    Utter nonsense and false claims on an 'Anonymous' post. There has been no such person existing from muzaffarpur working at TVF.

    While Arunabh has both the support from the loved ones and the backlash from the rest, only time will tell if the accusations are true to be believed or not. Stay tuned to Mumbai Live for more updates.
