After getting a series of requests on social media, Tamil superstar Thalapathy Vijay has finally responded and urged his fans to stop abusing Chennai based journalist. The abuse and trolls started when the journalist posted a tweet in which she said she walked out Vijay's film Sura upon its theatrical release. She was comparing her experience of watching the Vijay starrer with Shah Rukh Khan's recent box office disaster Jab Harry Met Sejal.

However, some crazy fans of Vijay didn't take it well and started trolling her with non stop abuses on her Twitter. But after getting nearly 63,000 abuse tweets, she had to complain to the police. She also requested the Tamil superstar to respond on the issue.

Following this, Vijay has issued a statement on Wednesday evening. He urged his fans not to abuse women and to respect people's opinion.

"I'm some one who respects women a lot. Everybody has the right to criticize anyone's film. It is my view that no woman should be spoken of in a demeaning way for any reason or anytime. Everyone has to praise womanhood. I request that nobody should share hurtful and wrong views about women on social media", said Vijay.
