A Dubai-based influencer has spoken out about the cyberbullying she faced after her father’s death in India.

Achu, the daughter of Oommen Chandy, a two-time Chief Minister of the south Indian state of Kerela and a member of the state’s legislative assembly, reveals she was a victim of cyberbullying in August. After her brother stood for a by-election to the assembly Achu received shocking amounts of hate online, also after her father’s death in July.

With over 200 thousand followers on Instagram, Oommen said she began to receive messages from trolls who told her that her father deserved to die and that she was responsible for his death.

“Cyber bullies took photos and videos from my Instagram handle and propagated false narratives attacking me and my late father,” she told a news outlet. She also said that the bullying was very difficult to deal with, especially during a time of grief. Oommen felt like she was being attached from all sides and she didn’t know where to turn.

However, Oommen decided to speak out about the cyberbullying in order to raise awareness of the issue. She said that she wanted to show people that cyberbullying is a real problem and that it can have a devastating impact on victims.
