Memes and trolls are the dark humor of the social-verse today. Blunders and banters observed with scrutiny in this world, celebrities often are the first ones to fall prey to this for obvious reasons. Here’s a list from 2016.

Shobhaa De

Twitter raged on the Indian columnist and novelist after her insensitive remark on the Indian Olympians in Rio this year. Celebrities and renowned personalities too denounced her tweet.

Yuvraj Singh

Virender Sehwag, the cricketer who took us on a laughter ride with his tweets this year, yet again humorously trolled his ex-team mate Yuvraj Singh for the launch function of his fashion line, YouWeCan a number of personalities tweeted the same thing. All in good humor, guys.

Tanmay Bhat

One of the four founders of the comedy organization, All India Bakchod’s Tanmay Bhat was the talk of social media and face of the headlines this year, after he mocked the legendary cricketer, Sachin Tendulkar and singer, Lata Mangeshkar with a Snapchat filter of face-swap.

Sonam Kapoor

In the Tanmay Bhat’s Snapchat fiasco, actress Sonam Kapoor too got trolled for having an opinion. Loathed by the masses, when Sonam Kapoor chose to back Tanmay, she too received hate on social media.

Vishal Dadlani

Bollywood singer and music director Vishal Dadlani, became the target of all the hate after he tweeted against Jain Monk Tarun Sagar, who in nude addressed the Haryana Assembly.

Parineeti Chopra

Deny is as much as you like, but the fact remains that celebrities are massively judged and usually Twitteratis take up humor to the level of insult without realizing. Something similar happened with Parineeti Chopra after she gave a statement of what turns her on in men.

Neha Dhupia

Neha Dhupia too, became a target to trolls on her comment section this year after she shared a photograph of her sunbathing on the beaches of Ibiza where her bikini wasn’t visible on Instagram. She even shut down her haters with another photographer of showing the bikini.

Ram Gopal Varma

Ram Gopal Varma was thoroughly mocked on Twitter for his double meaning tweet to actress Zarine Khan.

Twinkle Khanna

Mrs. Funny Bones aka Twinkle Khanna has time and again proven how opinionated and blunt she is! But, Twitter lashed out at her when she tweeted against Shree Shree Ravi Shankar’s Art of Living.

Hema Malini

Bollywood veteran actress had to face immense backlash after she insensitively tweeted about Pratyusha Banerjee’s suicide.

Twinkle Khanna

Twice in a year, Twinkle Khanna very recently stumbled upon some more abhorrence from Bhai-fans after she comically tweeted on Salman Khan’s much discussed bachelorhood.

Chetan Bhagat

The Indian author, Chetan Bhagat usually makes it to troll lists very often. This year again, he got heavily trolled when he asked Twitteratis to share his books against beautiful backgrounds. That's when they all got artsy.
