Fans criticised the former Twitter India Chief and said, “Shame to you,” in response to his callous Tweet regarding Sushant Singh Rajput’s blue tick.
Recently, celebrities and prominent personalities lost their blue ticks as a result of Twitter’s new rules. Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar, Salman Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, and other Bollywood stars were on a list of stars that we shared with you a few days ago that had lost their verification mark. The former Twitter India Chief tweeted about Sushant Singh Rajput’s blue tick while many others paid the subscription costs and received their blue ticks back.
Manish Maheshwari, the former head of Twitter India, tweeted to Elon Musk asking if people carry their phones into the afterlife. His Tweet was criticised by SSR’s ardent followers for being inconsiderate. On June 14, 2020, SSR committed suicide at his Bandra flat.
Taking to Twitter, Manish Maheshwari shared snapshot of Sushant Singh Rajput’s Twitter profile and wrote, “Wondering how @itsSSR verified his phone number @elonmusk? Either you are lying or people have figured out a way to carry their phone in afterlife.” He was soon bashed by the netizens for dragging the late actor.
Later, Manish Maheshwari posted a follow-up and clarified his earlier Tweet about Sushant Singh Rajput. He wrote, “The intent of this tweet was to bring out the chaos and confusion surrounding the #BlueTick. I have great respect for @itsSSR. Loved his acting in the #MSDhoni movie.”
Reacting to his follow-up Tweet a user wrote, “Why Your Follow Up Sounds More Patronizing than Apologetic IMO There’s more spine,courage,& brains in jellyfish. Why that “AfterLife” mention if You were just Trying To Bring Out Chaos; coz the only Chaos I see here is in your mind & intent. Otherwise who in the right mind will Slander/Disrespect a Deceased & that to a Man Of Infinite Potential Like #SushantSinghRajput. Stay Away from SSR.”
While another said, “Doesn’t look like you have respect for Sushant U better not take his name… He has earned a lot of Love and respect from people across the globe becoz of his personality talent his indness His family and fans R enough to love him…#SushantSinghRajput forever in our hearts.
