Richa Chadha took to Twitter, and replying to the shocking news of schoolboys talking about raping girls, she wrote, “This a multi-faceted problem.

This will explode in our faces in the next five years sadly,I reckon.” Swara Bhasker tweeted, “#boyslockerroom a telling tale of how toxic masculinity starts young! Underage boys gleefully planning how to rape & gangrape minor girls. Parents & teachers must address this with those Kids.. Not enough to ‘hang rapists’ .. we must attack the mentality that creates rapists!”

Swara Bhasker also applauded the Mumbai Police’s post slamming the Boys Locker Room chats and calling it unacceptable to disrespect women. Mumbai Police’s tweet read, “Boys will be boys - never an acceptable excuse earlier, will never be one ever after #StopThemYoung.” Take a look at their tweets below:
