Sunny Leone is one such celebrity who has seen the scary side of online abuse. Recounting the scary experience, she told Mid-Day, “Someone threatened me, telling me he’d come to my house to cause harm. Daniel [Weber, husband] was not in the country, and I was frightened, because I was living alone. I would hear noises outside my house and walk towards the door with a knife in my hand.”
This was not the only time Sunny spent sleepless nights over online threats. There was another incident in which a Twitter user with quite a large number of followers threatened her and even landed at her doorstep. “He started banging on my door. That his Twitter followers had also bullied me, made me fear that a mob would turn up and break into my house,” she recalled.
Following this incident, a disturbed Sunny installed cameras outside her house. She revealed that even though she has since moved to a different house, she is still shaken up by the incident.
