Popular singer Sona Mohapatra has always known how to give it back to trolls. On Monday, she took to Twitter to narrate an incident of inappropriate behaviour she faced when she was in college.

"During my BTech Engg, walking to the microprocessor lab in a loose khadi green kurta with a salwar. Seniors whistling, speculating loudly about my bra size. One ‘well wisher’ walked up & asked why I wasn’t wearing my dupatta ‘properly’, fully covering my ‘boobs’," she tweeted.

Further, she urged her followers to tweet what they remember wearing when they faced sexual violence. "Tweet what you remember wearing when you experienced sexual violence, threat or intimidation. Draw attention to victim blame," she tweeted.

Many of her followers tweeted, recalling what they were wearing when they faced violations. However, when a Twitter user said, "There are ample of famous sites nationally or otherwise to publicize celebrity body measurements in details. I'm sure that also should be considered a sexual intimidation strongly," she called him out and said, "& another, victim share comes along."

When a troll asked her, "if you are so much worried, why you do hot photo shoots showing full cleavage," the singer replied," Cus it’s my body, my cleavage Mr. Jay whoever. I do as I please with it."
