“People don’t realise the gravity of what they say, be it memes, be it videos or just the use of words. It’s a spur of the moment thing for them, instinctively what they feel they put it out there, not realising what the person reading it will go through,” Karthik said in the video.

On October 12, Dan Christian had revealed that he and his pregnant wife Jorgia Dunn had received hate on social media.

“I didn’t have a great game tonight, but that’s sport. However please leave her out of it,” Christian posted on Instagram.

Maxwell too took to Twitter, to call out the supporters.

“Some of the garbage that has been following on social media is absolutely disgusting!” he wrote. “We are human beings who are giving our best each and every day. Try being a decent person maybe instead of spreading abuse.

“Thank you to the REAL fans that shared love and appreciation for the players giving their all! Unfortunately, there is some horrible people out there that make social media a horrible place to be. It is unacceptable!!! Please don’t be like them.”

RCB, too, took to their official Twitter and expressed their support to Christian.

“Be a real fan," they shared.
