Being a public figure is certainly not an easy job. More often than not, these celebs will get bombarded with lewd and inappropriate comments from perverted fans online. Some of the previous cases that made the headlines include the ones involving Elizabeth Tan and also a model from Ukraine named Anastasiia Lenna. As for Haneesya Hanee, it looks like the female celeb has grown sick and tired of all the unsolicited remarks.
As a response, she came up with a long post on her IG to speak up on the matter. For starters, the well-known actress-model took to her TikTok earlier this week to share with her followers a video of her performing a weightlifting exercise with a young man (which happens to be her brother). The comments were flooded with some netizens leaving sexual remarks aimed at the two siblings, much to the dismay of Haneesya.
Seemingly infuriated by all the lewd comments, the “Dewi Remaja” alum came forward to put the online trolls on blast. She wrote on her caption, “So I posted this video on TikTok and it got some attention. It is very disturbing, reading how dirty people’s minds are. Saying things like, ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ (indicating incest) and also ‘We get that you guys are siblings, but still…’, ‘Both of them are lucky to be related,’ and more.”
“First of all, the guy at the back is my brother, he’s my gym partner, my spotter. When it comes to weightlifting, everyone has one,” Haneesya clarified, before adding, “Obviously, I’m wasting my time explaining myself on TikTok because clearly those people have lack of education and (might have) never been to the gym.”
“But the most disgusting thing is the fact that people are sexualising me working out with my brother. People have to stop sexualising women. Because of these people, we (as) women don’t have the freedom to do whatever we want without (the fear of) getting (sexually) harassed,” the 22-year-old public figure added.
Haneesya then concluded her post by saying, “There’s a lot of women, girls, female who wants to work out in public too. But they are too scared. They’re terrified that they might be a victim to sexual harassment. Which is wrong, we women shouldn’t hold ourselves back just because of these people. So keep your dirty mind to yourself. Have some respect. Spread love, not hate. ✌🏽”
During a recent interview with XTRA, Haneesya also expressed that she has grown sick of hearing sexual harassment cases happening here and there in the country. “Yes, it is tiring. In actual truth, it’s not about the fact that we cover our ‘aurat’ or not. Even if we cover everything, these sexual predators are always around lurking for their victims,” she told the portal.
