Grammy and Oscar-winning musician AR Rahman has issued a statement on the #MeToo movement which has seen people call out those who have sexually harassed them, particularly within the media industry. 

The statement has been shared on Twitter, and reads as follows:

Been observing the #metoo movement... Some of the names have shocked me... both the victims and their perpetrators... I would love to see our industry become cleaner and respectful of women. More power to all the victims coming forward!!!

In all my endeavours, my team and I are committed to creating an environment where everyone finds a safe creative space to bring their best, evolve and succeed.

Social media offers great freedom for victims to speak up, however, we should be careful in creating a new internet justice system, in case it's misused. 

The statement from Rahman comes amid reports that lyricist Vairamuthu allegedly used the former's name to trap women singers.
