On July 21, heavy rains affected Mumbai, resulting in widespread flooding and the destruction of property.
Bollywood actress Neha Dhupia took to Twitter to express her frustrations about the government's handling of Mumbai's monsoons.
And she immediately became subject to backlash, in the form of personal attacks against her character and work.
Many of her detractors were enraged at her criticism of Prime Minister Modi.
And, of course, things got really sexist. Really fast.
The actress's name quickly became amongst India's top ten trending topics on Twitter.
This incident comes less than a month after actress Shruti Seth came under similarly vicious sexist attacks on Twitter, also for criticising Prime Minister Modi's governance.
"If you truly wish to empower women I urge you to condemn this kind of hatred being spread in your name," Seth went on to write in an open letter to Modi about the sexism she witnessed his supporters display.
Activist Kavita Krishnan also fell victim to widespread misogynistic cyber-attacks in the last month after she took to Twitter to denounce a Modi initiative.
