Famous filmmaker Jami has revealed that he was raped 13 years ago and that what made him a firm believer of #MeToo movement.
He took to Twitter to break his silence on the traumas of his past and took a dig how harassers get away with their sins.
“Why I am so strongly supporting #MeToo?” Jami said. “Because, I know exactly how it happens now – inside a room, then outside courts and inside courts.”
Jami recalled the painful memories and the difficult times he went through after the alleged incident. “I froze not sure why yesss it really happens and happened to me. Till this day 13 years ve passed I curse myself why i didnt take his eyes out but i was so close to this guy a friend,” Jami wrote.
The filmmaker added that he could not retaliate despite having strong posture, that his system just shut down, and that he let the rapist have his way because he was powerful.
Jami refrained from naming the alleged perpetrator but claimed that he belonged to the media industry. “I told my few close friends but no one took it seriously,” he shared.
