Ac­tor Sunny Leone (left) is a fighter, es­pe­cially when it comes to deal­ing with trolls on so­cial me­dia. De­spite end­less com­ments on her tweets and In­sta­gram posts, some of which are of­ten of­fen­sive and deroga­tory, Sunny has some­how man­aged to keep up with her online pres­ence.

The 35-year-old ac­tor says, “As far as trolls go, they will al­ways have their space to speak, but the most amaz­ing thing about so­cial me­dia is you can block all the haters. So that shuts them up real fast.” Re­cently, when film­maker Ram Gopal Varma took a jibe at the former adult film star, she chose not to re­spond. RGV had tweeted: “I wish all the women in the world give men as much hap­pi­ness as Sunny Leone gives.”

Sunny feels it all de­pends on an in­di­vid­ual how to use the power of so­cial me­dia. Many feel that so­cial me­dia plat­forms have be­come more of pub­lic toi­lets that any­one can use, how­ever Sunny feels other­wise. “I don’t quite agree with the term pub­lic toi­let, but yes we all use so­cial me­dia for dif­fer­ent rea­sons. For my­self, I can very well say that I have re­ally learned to har­ness so­cial me­dia in a pos­i­tive way,” she says.
