The movement against entertainer Meshantan Naidoo has snowballed as social media users on the platforms Twitter and Facebook unleash their anger. Members of the South African Indian community, business and media personalities have withdrawn their support for him. Social media users have threatened to seek legal action against Naidoo for his attacks on them personally.
Naidoo sparked massive outrage following a series of shocking revelations made its way onto SA social media platforms. Within a matter of a week, Naidoo went from being a much-loved social media personality to the most unwanted person on social media.

“Meshantan Naidoo blocked me from Straight Choons when I posted this so I thought I’d post it as my status.I dont think anybody has ANY sexual interest in you.What I do know for sure (and this is a FACT) is that you have been mass reported to the Human Rights Commission and I can guarantee you there are gonna be dire consequences for your choices.It baffles me cos you don’t strike me as a man with a vicious heart. It’s like you go against your true nature when you make horrible and mean content.Soon you’re gonna be straight chooning a public apology because the HRC is gonna sit on you. Plus there’s gonna be legal ramifications. If this girl charges you with crimen injuria you are gonna be found guilty (as an Attorney I can guarantee this) and you are gonna have a criminal conviction with a criminal record for the next 10 years.All the idiots that support vile content will disappear. These are not your people. They are giving you attention for their amusement. If they cared about you, they would have informed you long ago that this conduct and content is detrimental to your future and to you as a person.Good luck. I wish you the kindness you never afforded others when it’s your time to endure hardship soon. #MeshantanNaidoo“
