“This guy was harassing the family during the interview – which made the family upset. I first lovingly explained that don’t do this, but despite the explanation, this guy didn’t understand and was making a lot of noise – after which I made sure that his action wouldn’t be tolerated by giving him an opportunity,” she said in a tweet.

Well, her explanation has left the opinion of the netizens divided. Some came out supporting her but for many, that was not an act of a journalist.
