On Thursday, which also happened to be Valentine's Day, a tragic attack on a CRPF bus through a suicide bomber in Kashmir claimed over at least 30 lives. This is being called the most fatal attack after the Uri attack that took place in 2016. Across the nation, public figures are voicing up against such shameful acts, condemning violence as they saute martyrs. Amid them, it was Virat Kohli's ill-timed tweets that earned him a handful of backlash.
Virat had taken to Twitter to let his fans know about the upcoming Indian Sports Honour, an initiative jointly taken by the RP-Sanjiv Goenka Group and Virat Kohli Foundation that honours the best sports personalities in India. The awards were founded in 2017 and the 2019 chapter is to take place soon. At a time when we were mourning the tragedy, his tweet asking people to vote irked his followers to no end. In a short while, Virat deleted both his tweets.
Here's how his followers reacted.
A wrong timing can cause so much!
