MC Kode’s mother appeals missing son to return home
MC Kode’s mother Deepa Tiwari on Sunday appealed her missing son to return home. “Aditya your mother will also die with you, please come back, all are with you and we will solve all problems. Every day is a new day, please come back we are waiting for you,” Tiwari said in a statement to ANI.
“From that time we have been troubled and are searching for him. After six years social media threw it up (MC Kode’s six-year-old video from a rap battle)… he had apologized for that but then the trolling began and he even received death threats, he was completely broken and don’t know where he has gone away now,” she added.
Mc Kode’s mother further informed that the Delhi Police was acting in a routine manner even after an official complaint was lodged. Informing about MC Kode’s career, Tiwari said that he was a self-made person who ran his own company and organized rap music battles. However, after being trolled on social media, he lost all endorsements from companies and received death threats.
Blaming social media for her son’s disappearance, Tiwari said, “One person announced a reward of Rs 50,000 for anyone who would slap him 20 times and record it. t is a complete creation of social media! This is 100 per cent social media generated episode. If this matter wasn’t dragged after a long time of 6 years then Aditya would have been with us…Social media didn’t realize if threats are coming, then monitoring should have been done. Social media is responsible for my son’s agony.”
“He is a very sensitive boy, when the trolling episode did not stop even after several apologies, he went into darkness. He stopped getting work and his career was completely finished,” she added.
