Celebrity Twitter blunders that kept us entertained in 2015


Celebs may look spruce on screens with those fine looks, jaw-dropping outfits or magnificent personas but, under the social media roof, they’re all equal, more or less. Some celebrities, giant or petite fixating over social media have garnered massive attention (wrath or giggles) for their social media slip-ups in 2015, lets recap.

Fame can surely be notorious and having gigantic followers might not always be merry; these celebrities just manage to affirm this.

Salman Khan Twitter defense for Yakub Memon

The mega star managed to leave the country in uproar in just 140 characters when he mounted a series o feisty defense for Yakub Memon. Voicing against the Supreme Court judgment through a few tweets, Salman exclaimed, “Get tiger (Memon) hang him. Parade him not his brother.”

Twitter within no time was split up in two, to defend or condemn his actions creating an enormous buzz on the social media. To conclude, Salman himself not only retracted his tweets but also posted an apology.

Ameesha Patel- Kushal Tandon Twitter tiff

Two lesser acclaimed celebrities, managed to grab the attention of Twitteratis with their ugly spat. It all began when Kushal Tandon, the ex-Bigg Boss participant (and the very patriotic, if we may say) took Twitter to express his displeasure towards Ameesha Patel for ‘not standing up for the national anthem’ at a movie theatre, averring that she disrespected the national anthem.

The actress did not take this allegation well and reacted in a string of furious tweets (because one was not enough) citing that she was seated staring at her phone because she was going through her ‘monthly girly problems.’ That’s right, “girly problems.”

Twitteratis sure had their share of laughter over this squabble, clearly a blunder from both ends.

Sonakshi Sinha – BAN-istan troll.

Twitter can be condescending, and ruthlessly blunt in addition to being a troll factory and actress Sonakshi Sinha would definitely agree with us on this. Sinha was fired by Twitteratis when she tweeted against a week-long meat ban in Mumbai imposed for a Jain festival calling India as ‘BAN-istan’, post which she became a target for hate tweets.

Sonakshi’s Twitter critics managed to surface a 2014 tweet from her asking then-Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan to ban cosmetics tested on animals, blaming her to have double standards. Despite all this, Sinha replied to hate tweets like a boss.   @devikajoshi760 #sonasays pic.twitter.com/SP4TYDAh5u — Sonakshi Sinha (@sonakshisinha) September 2, 2015Sonam Kapoor’s Twitter troll

After Sonakshi Sinha, Sonam Kapoor was the fresh bait for Twitteratis when her tweet read, “Our country is going to remain a 3rd world nation because of the intolerant misogynistic close minded few.”

The tweet did not go down well and she received backlash for calling the ban misogynistic. Kapoor, came out to defend herself rather sternly and claimed that what she tweeted was actually a critique of the general mentality and not exclusively about meat ban.

 

 

 

Anushka Sharma tweeting post the demise APJ Abdul Kalam

 

Another Bollywood beauty, Anushka Sharma had a scuffle on Twitter, when she was trolled for tweeting post the demise of former President APJ Abdul Kalam or “Azad APJ Abdul Kalam” as Sharma preferred to call him.

The genuine mistake of adding ‘Azad’ to his name was followed by trolls on unforgiving Twitteratis. She later clarified to the press, “It was an honest mistake and even though I got trolled, I don’t care because my intentions were correct. They are cowards, faceless people who comment sitting behind a computer. Do that to my face and we will see.”

 

This is not the first time social media gagged at the cost of Sharma, she has been the target before and blamed repeatedly for the poor performance for her cricketer boyfriend Virat Kohli on the field.

Abhijeet Bhattacharya backs Salman Khan

If you thought only fans had illogical and blind theories to shout out their support for superstar Salman Khan for his infamous hit and run case, then you’re wrong. Singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya also had something majorly insensitive to tweet about this scenario which infuriated a majority when he blamed the government who failed to provide the poor with roof and suggested that this forced people like the hit-and-run victims to sleep on footpaths.

If that was not enough to make things worse, he also said that roads were meant for “cars and dogs and not for people sleeping on them”. He reached out to the film fraternity to support Khan and attacked the homeless by saying, “Kutta rd pe soyega kutte ki maut marega, roads garib ke baap ki nahi hai I ws homles an year nvr slept on rd” (If a dog sleeps on the road, he will die a dog’s death). He also questioned why the victims were sleeping on the Mumbai roads and not in their villages.

Hritik Roshan, too slow for social media?

 

White-gold or black-blue, remember? Don’t worry, it’s not back again as social media agreed to disagree and leave it way back in February. But Bollywood actor Hritik Roshan seemed to have woken up pretty late to the dress dilemma in May. Roshan who was evidently oblivious to what was making social media viral and was heavily trolled for not being updated with social media.
