New Delhi: A day after singer Chinmayi Sripaada shared an Instagram post announcing the birth of her twins with husband Rahul Ravindran, the social media site has suspended her account.
In a tweet by her official Twitter handle, Chinmayi informed her fans that Instagram suspended her account on the grounds of reporting men who were sending her explicit pictures via direct messages.
The singer wrote: “Instagram has basically removed MY account for reporting men who send ME their penises on DMs. Its been going on for a while where I report but MY access was barred. Anyway that’s that. My backup account is chinmayi.sripada.”
Take a look:
On June 21, Chinmayi announced that the couple named their newborns Driptah and Sharvas. “Driptah and Sharvas. The new and forever center of our Universe,” Sripada wrote, tagging Ravindran.
In a subsequent post, the singer lashed out at trolls who alleged if she welcomed the babies through surrogacy, saying she was “protecting” herself as she navigated pregnancy.
“I’m absolutely loving these people who are dm-ing me asking if I had twins through a surrogate just because I didn’t post photos of me being pregnant. Only those who were my innermost circle knew because I was protecting myself,” she said.
Sripada and Ravindran tied the knot in May 2014.
