In his tweet, Kohli writes, "I guess trolling isn't for me guys, I'll stick to getting trolled! 😁
I spoke about how "these Indians" was mentioned in the comment and that's all. I’m all for freedom of choice. 🙏 Keep it light guys and enjoy the festive season. Love and peace to all. ✌😊"

The recently turned 30-year-old, who has been rested for the T20I series against Windies, launched his own app on November 5, his birthday. In one of the videos released, Kohli was reacting to mean tweets or comments on his social media handles.
One of the of the comments, which came on Instagram, read, “Over-rated batsman. Personally, I see nothing special in his batting. I enjoy watching English and Australian batsmen more than these Indians.”
After reading the comment, Kohli responded, “Okay, I don’t think you should live in India then... you should go and live somewhere else no. Why are you living in our country and loving other countries? I don’t mind you not liking me but I don’t think you should live in our country and like other things. Get your priorities right.”

His comments have not gone down well on social media, with many users slamming the Indian skipper.

Asking a citizen to leave his own country is not up to you Virat. https://t.co/fGrEjYvQNU — Narayan (@thenarayan_) November 7, 2018
Kohli's such a natural narrow-minded jock that this side of his comes through even in something that looks like a scripted PR moment https://t.co/5ACXHckWwV

Much the same way people of Indian origin in Australia and England cheer for India whilst enjoying the perks of being citizens of those countries. What say @imVkohli ? Please ask all NRIs to support the baggy green on your tour to Australia next month https://t.co/ZPlLWmohc9 — Asif (@asif737NG) November 7, 2018
Isn't Kohli a Federer fan?
He should leave India for liking Federer over Yuki or Saketh or Ram. https://t.co/GZPn34uA1R
