India lost the semifinals against Australia in Sydney by 95 runs. The loss was truly heartbreaking for the Indian cricket fans .Its a matter of shame on the media,news channels and people who took pride in their players in the morning and just after the match got over they started disgracing them publicly.Some Team India fans went nuts on social networking sites over as Virat Kohli failed to put up a fight against Australia. But the target was not only Virat this time, it is his girlfriend Anushka Sharma who is facing twitterati’s wrath.
The loss wasn’t taken well by the supporters. After the return to the Pavillion of Virat Kohli, the fans stormed Twitter and blamed Anushka Sharma for his poor performance. The jokes and insults regarding the two went trending.The cameras also zoomed Anushka’s reaction when Brad Haddin caught the ball off Virat’s bat. Anushka’s expression became the centre of all the trolls.Twitter had its fair share of haters and they unleashed the trolls against Anushka.The fans channelled their negativity against Virat’s girlfriend and blaming her for the loss.
Some called her ‘panauti’ (bad omen), while some cursed and abused her. Some fans and followers even went to the extent of asking others to boycotting all her movies, even though it was pretty clear from the video footage shown during the match that Anushka was equally disappointed when Virat walked back to the dressing room.Despite the fact that Anushka WAS NOT the one who was batting, bowling or fielding, the troll tweets just kept coming in.
Bollywood fraternity expressed their support for the Delhi Girl on #Twitter. Here are some of the tweets by well known personalities -:
