Why I Don’t Feel The Same Way About TVF After Hearing To This Shocking News
So being a commoner, who goes to office at a routine time, has to fix dinner and groceries after coming back in evening and depends on social media pages of news channels; I can safely say that there hasn’t been a day when I didn’t cast a look at a rape news and passed avoiding the blood-boil and anger storm in eyes, but this case has broken many more myths than just, “roads are not safe.” or “you shouldn’t wander on New Year’s Eve alone.”
Just when a ray of hope for quality TV content slanted through our minds and we felt good from within knowing that there still exists good web content. We could correlate with the stories and specially characters because they seem to be one of us, struggling among routine knots of life, juggling between things and still trying to remain their coolest self. I binge watched quite many TVF TV series even when convincing me for one is difficult, because when I have so many pending tasks to catch on time, so something that consumes my time has to have some meaning. And these TV series, short videos and podcasts brought our trivial emotions, daily battles, love fights, relationship crisis and everything that an average person goes through daily, on screen.
It felt relaxing that there is a bunch of people coordinating to bring something fresh which is not dipped in cliched concepts. Like many of you, I too have stalked many artists religiously after getting introduced to the label. But this is utterly sickening to discover stuff like this, that even what felt right and genuine is blotted from within. That this also couldn’t escape the coarse reality of today’s society. That this also is no exception in the context of conventional “image” of media houses. So, should I cement this fact in my mind, that there is no safe spot at such places where men and women have to come forward and collaborate shoulder-to-shoulder to work out creative content?
But what is more saddening is the way channel came back lashing out at the person who posted about a repeated assault with quite elaborated details on facts. Why did your clarification statement smell like criminal mentality itself? You threatened to hunt down that person and reach him/ her to a righteous justice you wish. Didn’t thousands or millions of fans expect for a more substantial response in a humbler tone? Did the praise you collected get into your head and you even forgot to be rational while addressing the public that made you?
To the confusion that it was just an allegation which remains yet to be looked into for conclusions, how can so many women including interns, colleagues and even a classmate, be wrong at the same time when they are claiming to have faced similar assault at one point or another? How can such sordid image of the central figure not be known to lead artists when they work in a close circle for almost 24*7? I refuse to believe!
And this is how you justify your cheap actions with just one sentence saying that you are a heterosexual single man and freely flirt with women around you? Aren’t you sounding synonymous with those aged notorious politicians who call it a genuine mistake if a young lad gets raunchy around girls of his age? While many earnest questions are yet to be answered and the dusty air to be cleared around the matter, this episode has shaken me to the core. I am not sure if I am going to boycott the channel right now and forever. But am sure I won’t be able to look at the same faces with the same excitement again because they all represent the same entity for me!
