    Assam Model Boycotted By Local Fashion Industry

    The members of Fashion People United shared a statement on social media on Tuesday

    Guwahati: A model has been boycotted by Fashion People United in solidarity with members of the Fraternity who have allegedly fallen victim to cyberbullying from the model recently. The model in question is Suhaani Laskar.

    The members of Fashion People United shared a statement on social media on Tuesday:

    “It’s been decided in the Fashion People United meeting to boycott Suhaani Laskar from our Fashion Industry from today onwards for her demeaning comments to the seniors like Stuti Choudhury, Meenu Paul, Kamal Dey, Bhaskar Saikia and Rajkanya Baruah. No model coordinators will hire her for any more shows, no make up artist will work on her, no photographers will take her for any shoot. In short, we are shutting the door for her. We expect and ensure respect to all of our industry.”

    To get more clarity on the matter TIME8 got in touch with Stuti Choudhury, one of the victims of the alleged cyberbullying. “I had accepted her friend request sometime back as she is also a model. The drama began when I asked her a simple question on something she had written on Facebook about a leading actress, I had simply pointed out a grammatical error. But she blocked me and started writing all sorts of things about me, calling me names like ‘sexually frustrated lass,’ mentioning my name in a series of insulting posts on Facebook. Mutual friends sent me screenshots asking what had happened. I was shocked and forwarded it to friends from the industry who were equally aghast.”

    A model, Rajkanya Baruah, another one of the alleged victims, had gone through something similar a few months back. “She had Slut shamed and Body shamed me on Social Media, and also called me derogatory names which was really hurtful and unfortunate. People may have personal issues with somebody, but taking to Facebook or other such platforms to publicly humiliate someone is not acceptable. That’s why the Fashion Fraternity has decided to boycott her,” she said, speaking exclusively to TIME8.

    Suhaani, on being contacted by TIME8 said she is in hibernation now due to the “paparazzi regarding her.” She claimed Stuti had first insulted her on Facebook but said people were asking her to ask forgiveness from Stuti. “I am not going to say sorry. She has insulted me, written very derogatory things about me on Facebook, why will I say sorry?” She says she is in possession of screenshots to prove this.

    She went to say somebody had sent her a screenshot of people from the Fashion Industry deciding to boycott her and have decided to never hire her. “How will they hire me? I have an Identity Card as a government employee, an employee of the Irrigation Department. They shouldn’t talk about hiring me.”
