#ShameOnYouKaranJohar is trending, KJO faces abuse from twitteraties
#ShameOnKaranJohar started trending on Twitter after it seemed that Karan Johar had 'liked' a tweet praising Akshay Kumar and abusing Shah Rukh Khan.
Karan Johar is the most recognizable person in the film industry. He is known for his style, movies, and a stream of controversy.
He got embroiled in a social media fiasco on Friday when some technical error led to him 'liking' a tweet abusing Karan's good friend Shah Rukh Khan while praising Akshay Kumar's Kesari.
A large part of the social media users assumed that the 'like' was intentional, until Karan himself tweeted to clear the air, saying that there has been a "technical problem" with his Twitter account.
Guys having a technical problem with my twitter account! Strange things are going on!from uploading shoe picture and gibberish to liking tweets I haven’t even read and would NEVER even acknowledge! Please bear with me and I apologize for any inconvenience! Sorting it out asap!— Karan Johar (@karanjohar) March 22, 2019
The tweet that Karan apparently liked compared the box office collections of Kesari with that of SRK's film Zero, hailing Akshay as a bigger star. It didn't take netizens too long to take note of the fact and post screenshots which went viral.
#ShameOnKaranJohar started trending on the micro-blogging site as fans of SRK called out the director for liking such an offensive tweet.
' @iamsrk it's high time you should know that you have been keeping Snake on your Neck. This ungrateful @karanjohar can stoop low for money and fame. If he doesn't apologize publicly, we will trend day and night against him and fill his mention with abuses.#ShameOnKaranJohar pic.twitter.com/mSlJ0OKyvm— BRK. (@iamsrk_brk) March 22, 2019
Then, Karan Johar smartly tried to tackle the situation with a funny tweet induced with wordplay and simultaneously promoted his new film song 'First Class'.
Aaj twitter pe thodi gadbad ho gayi but baaki sab #firstclass hai. 🙈— Karan Johar (@karanjohar) March 22, 2019
Replying to the backlash faced by Karan Johar, SRK, the man himself tweeted and said to his fans that mistakes can be committed by anyone and should make peace.
I hate clarifications on SM. @karanjohar is technologically challenged but has other good qualities like his taste in clothes!?Just like Life, twitter doesn’t come with instructions, so mistakes r natural....& also he has fat fingers. Go easy all, Make Lov not War...it’s more fun— Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) March 22, 2019
