#ShameOnKaranJohar: Ace director slammed for liking anti-SRK tweet

MUMBAI: Filmmaker Karan Johar, who has been slammed by social media users for liking a tweet which trolled superstar Shah Rukh Khan, on Friday apologized saying that there is a technical issue and he will personally never acknowledge such comments.

It is reported that Karan liked an anti-SRK tweet posted by a social media user.

The user spoke about Akshay Kumar’s latest release “Kesari” and compared Shah Rukh to Akshay’s stardom and apparently called him as “B grade” actor.

Karan has co-produced “Kesari“, which released on Thursday.

The tweet read: “Half day collections of ‘Kesari’ on Holi day (which is worse than pre-Diwali day) is greater than ‘Zero’ full festival day collection.”

Karan’s like on the comment did not go well with SRK fans as they started #shameonKaran on Twitter and started questioning his friendship with SRK.

After receiving backlash, Karan wrote: “Guys I am 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.

But it seems damage has already been done as one fans furious at Karan called him “snake”.

Shah Rukh was quick to offer a defence of Karan. He wrote on Twitter, “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.”
