Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan rarely reacts to political controversies on Twitter. But on Sunday, he was so enraged over a comment he claimed he did not make, he found it imperative to clear his stand, losing it in the process.
This is how the story unfolded. Actor Kamaal R Khan, rabble-rouser-in-chief and Twitter's enfant terrible, posted a couple of controversial tweets claiming that leading actors such as Khan, Aamir Khan and Salman, who had promised to leave India forever if BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi
came to power, are yet to deliver on their promise.
Kamaal Khan even attached a screenshot of a purported SRK tweet saying he would leave India if Modi came to power. But Shah Rukh strongly denied ever having having said any such thing.
"Good time to tell all fools who r talking of a tweet that I didn't tweet, u suck as much as the grammar of that fake tweet & I'm being kind," an angry SRK tweeted.
With several meme generators available on the internet, it's not difficult to morph or Photoshop anyone's tweet. A series of fake tweets have flooded the Internet. Sometimes these are used for fun in harmless memes. But often, pranksters go a step further to malign a person's image.
Good time to tell all fools who r talking of a tweet that I didn’t tweet, u suck as much as the grammar of that fake tweet & I’m being kind.
