Filmmaker Karan Johar was on Friday blasted by the Twitteratis, mostly Shah Rukh Khan’s fans after he liked a tweet( probably accidently) that abused Shah Rukh Khan.
Apparently, Karan Johar mistakenly liked a tweet that compared Akshay Kumar and Shah Rukh Khan. The tweet by a user called Mannu Yadav read, “Half day colls [collections] of Kesari on Holi day (which is worse than pre diwali day) [is] greater than Zero full festival day collection.”
The abusive tweet that KJO liked

The tweet went on to use some expletive words for Shah Rukh Khan, and said how SRK’s stardom was nothing compared to Akshay Kumar’s. Within no time, Shah Rukh Khan’s fans spotted that the offensive tweet got a ‘like’ by Karan Johar and they went on a tweeting spree against the Kuch Kuch Hota Hai director.

However soon as KJO realized his mistake, he immediately unliked the tweet but the damage was done and the screenshot of the liked tweet already went viral and looks like Shah Rukh Khan fans are in no mood to stay calm and accused him of backstabbing his best friend SRK.
At the time of filing story, #ShameOnKaranJohar was at the fifth position in India trends, with more than 25,000 tweets using the hashtag.
Take a look at some of the tweets:
When SRK and Salman rivalry was at the peak in 2011-2013 both of them never spoke bad thing about each other.
When SRK and Karan are close, KJo planned negativity and backstabbed SRK.

For those who think that @karanjohar would have mistakenly liked that tweet, let me tell you one thing that I am very careful and aware of what I like/RT/tweet without being a social media personality but he is. And so he must be aware of what he’s doing here.#ShameOnKaranJohar— Pragyansh Nigam (@iam_pragyansh) March 22, 2019
Some of the angry fans even called for boycotting Akshay Kumar’s Kesari which is produced by Johar.
