The couple said that they did expect negative comments but were overwhelmed with abuses that poured in for the pictures. Lakshmi said that she was slut-shammed online and her parents were also abused.

kerala couple"Both of us were very much clothed throughout the shoot. It is impossible to not be clothed as we were shooting outdoors, in a rather public place in Vagamon. That the photographer was able to capture aesthetic shots of us, is purely his creativity and camera skills. However, most users, especially on Facebook, began moral policing me and my wife over the nature of the pictures," Rishi told TNM.

But I was hit with a storm of horrible comments when the pictures were posted on Facebook. Initially, we responded to some of the comments, but then the pictures went viral and it was overwhelming to have to respond to trolls. So we decided to ignore it," Lakshmi said.
