The internet is not a safe place for women, we all know that. The trolls have no limit and no fear of consequence, but today we saw a new low. Ziva Dhoni, 5, the daughter of former Indian captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, received rape threats online after Chennai Super Kings lost their match in the ongoing Indian Premier League 2020
In the comment section of MSD’s Instagram posts, there were several trolls who openly threatened Ziva with rape. Mind you, not one, not two but several comments were made in the same vein. All of this, only because CSK lost a match and their captain happens to be Ziva’s dad, MSD.
Just saw that Dhoni's 6-year-old daughter Ziva is getting rape and death threats because he didn't play well in #IPL2020
Do people realize what shithole we have become? Can you even imagine where we are heading as a country?

Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav were on the receiving end of social media trolling after CSK failed to chase down the target of 168 set by KKR at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium.
Twitter users posted screenshots and reacted to the horrendous comments

Do you see the future of this country for women? where they're normally giving a 6 year old rape threats because her father didn't play a game well?
Makes me sick
