Yesterday, when the entire B-town was mourning the death of Sushant Singh Rajput, Shah Rukh Khan also put up a tweet about the Kedarnath actor’s demise and wrote, “He loved me so much…I will miss him so much. His energy, enthusiasm and his full happy smile. May Allah bless his soul and my condolences to his near and dear ones. This is extremely sad….and so shocking!!” Unfortunately, his tweet has landed him into a predicament as fans feel that his tweet displays a sheer narcissism.
Netizens not only slammed SRK for his condolence tweet but also shamed the actor for putting a bad quality picture of himself with Sushant in his tweet. Here’s what they have to say…
Fans Call Out Shah Rukh
@sailorsmoon: “First line is borderline narcissistic.”
@Ni_Sha_008: “‘he loved me so much’…Didn’t u love him??? Pic is also taken from google. Hollow sympathy.”
Fans Are Unhappy With Picture Shared By Shah Too
@MehHarshil: “We know that he loved you so much. That much that you have to take screenshot from Google. You didn’t have his image with you in phone. Next time, learn how to take proper screenshots or how to save google image in camera roll.”
@Jabronione: “Honestly who would start a condolence message with “he loved me so much.” It’s weird.”
Netizens Call Shah Rukh ‘Fake’
@satya_AmitSingh: “‘He loved me so much’ is this a tribute or self-praising? I am so great. Come out of ‘me’. Mr Khan, we know You don’t even have his pic, this is a downloaded pic from google, it shows how much you cared for him. Bollywood is fake, and you are the king of all the fakes.”
SRK Disappoints Netizens
@willysnow5: “It wasn’t even downloaded. It was screenshot. I feel bad. I really liked you @iamsrk Thank God I am now a huge fan of other actors. Greatly disappointed.”
@MsStilettoes: “229 k likes for this self-appreciating tweet. Wow!”
