Malaika Arora expressed shock and wrote, "Absolutely hateful and despicable. What kind of people would do such a thing." (sic)
"The inhumanity of this act is just unbelievable. This is the time for our community to step up and find a way to help get justice to a soul that can't stand up for himself. If there is any way one can reach out to help, this is the time," (sic) wrote Anushka Sharma.
Posting about the incident a little more sensitively, John Abraham tweeted, "I apologise for tweeting something so disturbing but the need of the hour is to protect these beautiful animals. For people who do not like animals, at least please do not hurt them." (sic)
