Social networking has become a daily business for all of us today. Everyone spend considerable amount of time, a day, networking with the world, reasons being endless.
Likewise, Bollywood stars too, have become preys of this cobweb, called social media. Drawn are they to the internet, socializing, tweeting and connecting.
Initially, celebs used the social media as a PR tool, to promote their upcoming movies or projects. But, highly interactive twitter gave them a better scope of connecting up-close and personal, with their fans, co-stars, film fraternity and of course the public.
Expressing their views, on a social cause, a news headline, or even on political issues, stars today speak much more openly on any random topic, by their tweets. In fact, literally enjoying the liberty of expressing their minds. But all good things come with a package they say!
No one's listening when a common man speaks, but when a well-known celebrity tweets more or less about anything, they can be literally eaten-up by trollers. These trollers could be unknown faces, co-stars or anybody from the film industry.
Actors are backlashed for their performances, actresses are trolled for their appearance, relationships and twitter goof-ups, while producers and directors are critically slashed for their bombed movies mercilessly!
While such trolls are somehow acceptable by the film fraternity, there are these faceless trolls that are really annoying, cruel and unforgiving. They simply attack the celebrities for anything and everything they say. Though it is practically impossible to battle a virtual army of trolls, celebs today have learnt to face them, the hard way.
Celebrities are celebrities for a reason, not to be deterred by some useless, mindless, jobless trollish morons! Fired!!
Rishi Kapoor - Hillary Clinton, Gandhi Family
Unapologetic Rishi Kapoor faced a troll attack for his sexist tweet on Hillary Clinton's coughing picture collating it with Monica Lewinsky-Bill Clinton affair. But was applauded for his tweet "Baap ka maal samajh rakha hai?" on renaming institutions after the Gandhi dynasty. He truly had a point here, right guys!
Sonakshi Sinha - Meat Ban
Ms. Sinha got it all back for her tweet on meat ban in India. Ruthless were the trollers demeaning her persona, even dragging her politician father Shatrughan Sinha and actress Sonam Kapoor in to it. And how our dear Sona reverted at her trollers is a different story!
Anushka Sharma - APJ Abdul Kalam's Spelling
Poor Anushka baby was bombarded by trolls for her condolence tweet on the demise of our respected Former President and Bharat Ratna recipient APJ Abdul Kalam. Spelling our beloved President's name wrong, not once but twice, invited the trollers to slash her left and right. Sad. But Anushka, how could you?
Hrithik Roshan - The Dress
Hrithik ended up in soup when he tweeted on a 3-month-old colour-debate-troll about ‘The dress'. Silly, but was funny to watch how his trollers munched on him! Actor, wake-up said the tweets!
Neha Dhupia - Criticised Modi
Thoughtful about the rain-slashed Mumbai, Neha was relentlessly trolled for her criticising ‘good governance' tweet, obliquely referring to PM Narendra Modi's public endorsements of #selfiewithdaughter and yoga day campaign. She had to face fierce sexist comments for this. Irrelevant? Silence was what she embraced for such humongous ill-minded twitteratis!
Abhishek Bachchan - Baby Aaradhya Being Dragged
When a twitterati shared a meme that made fun of Abhishek Bachchan's movies, indicating that his little daughter Aradhya wouldn't like them, Jr. Bachchan though seemed to have lost his cool, shut off the troller in proper gentleman way. Beware, don't mess with my family, is what Abhishek warned!
Sonam Kapoor - Cannes Dress
Style icon Sonam Kapoor was trolled for her appearance in a stunning custom made gown at the Cannes Film Festival this year. While fashion frenzy people loved her look, trollers came down to call it a ‘roomali roti', ‘pocha', ‘raita' and what not... Her say? Nevermind!
Twinkle Khanna - Saffron Brigade
Twinkle Khanna, who's popular on Twitter for her witty tweets, got embroiled in a controversy and severely trolled, when she said that the saffron brigade was good for nothing. Guess how she bit back? By calling them cockroaches! Brave!
Priyanka Chopra - Priyanka Chopra's Lips Are Visible From The Moon
Priyanka Chopra took it as a compliment rather than being offended by this tweet, she was made to read in one of Karan Johar's chat show ‘Koffee with Karan'. Slamming the troll on their face with all grace and sexiness, we would say! Way to go girl!
