8 Strong Cases for Why Bollywood Actors Should Not Be Given Access To Their Twitter Accounts
Posted On 11th September, 2017 @ 15:28 pm by Debanjan Dhar


Social media is an unforgiving place. One wrong post, and you’re that young boy who’s sent to school by his mother in his sister’s cardigan (ah… memories). Anyway, the point is, social media can be a big bully, and they don’t care if you’re some big celebrity. You walk around with a target painted on your forehead, and you’ll get ripped apart. These celebs asked for it. Their tweets were as dumb as a Bandra boy on pot. As dumb as reporters asking people at cyclone-affected area, “Kaisa lag raha hai aap ko?’’


1. Sidharth Malhotra 








When Ram Rahim’s followers went on a fatal rampage following the verdict against the tainted Guru, Malhotra decided to prove that he’s the Dumbfu*k of The Year by sneaking in a film promotion of his movie A Gentleman in a Tweet that was meant to show solidarity with the lives lost in Haryana riots. 



2. John Abraham 







Some people thought Abraham’s account was hacked. By Sidharth Malhotra. But it wasn’t. All protein and no empathy makes John an insensitive boy. So Sir John Abraham tweets about North Korea’s nuclear tests, and much like Malhotra, tries to plug in a promotion of his new film on Pokhran nuclear tests. 



3. Abhijeet Bhattacharya 






This guy’s Twitter account is like a goldmine of blunders. His blatant assh*lery often backfires. It’s like North Korea launching a missile and the missile landing back in North Korea. The only thing that’s worse than Abhijeet Bhattacharya’s Tweets is Kim Jong-un’s haircut. We loved him for his voice. But he seems to have lost his plot on Twitter. Here’s what he tweeted about Salman Khan’s hit-and-run case. 



4. Paresh Rawal





We love you Paresh, but don’t be a Baburao Ganpat Rao Apte in real life. Especially on Twitter. Because, in real life, you’re not just an actor but also an MP. In response to the news of author Arundhati Roy’s criticism of a jawan tying up a protester to his jeep as a human shield against stone pelters, Rawal came up with this caustic tweet. 



5. Uday Chopra 





Uday Chopra’s Twitter timeline from the day he first logged in has been a mistake. If there’s one friend at your party who doesn’t drink or smoke up, make him scroll down Chopra’s Twitter feed – he’ll get higher than anyone. He’d also have the worst hangover. For the rest of his life. 



6. Anushka Sharma 







Anushka Sharma is cool but even she has her Alia Bhatt moments. It was 2015, and APJ Abdul Kalam breathed his last at the age of 84. You might remember how social media expressed sadness over the loss of their favourite cricketer, APJ Abdul Kalam. But Sharma was not as bad as these guys. In fact she didn’t try to fit in at all. When the entire country was posting about APJ Abdul Kalam, the cricketer, out of peer pressure, Sharma chose to dedicate an obituary to a completely unknown man, not caring about the trending hashtag. 



7. Hema Malini 





A young actress, Pratyusha Banerjee, took her life after suffering from emotional trauma for days. Hema Malini’s point, however, was how Pratyusha Banerjee had done god wrong. Like, seriously? 



8. Twinkle Khanna








Twinkle Khanna thought it would be funny to the bone to click a pooping man’s picture and put it up on social media. Her intention, of course, was to spot and shame public defecators. Also promote Toilet Ek Prem Katha. But it’s okay, because Khanna has opened the toilets at her residence for all those who live in Mumbai but can’t afford a proper toilet. Oh wait, she hasn’t! Then what does sneaking up pictures of people pooping make her? A pooping Tom?
