There was a time when all celebrities used to worry about while going outside were their clothes, but not anymore! In this era of Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, they need to take care of every movement. One hair out of place and BAM! You’re now the trending topic on internet and not for the right reasons.

2018 was nothing short of brutal when it came to trolling the celebrities. Take a look:

1. Anant Ambani
Mukesh Ambani’s son was trolled because of his speech at the 40th Reliance Anniversary event. This is not the first time Anant has been a victim of internet’s trolls, as he was formerly obese as well.

2. Suhana Khan
After SRK’s daughter appeared on the cover of Vogue, the internet broke into streams of memes and comments about nepotism. Suhana’s statement about her struggles as a star kid (whether actually said or not) were also whip lashed.

3. Anushka Sharma
From dissing a guy for throwing garbage on the road, to being shot down for getting a picture clicked with the Indian, to Sui Dhaga memes –I think it won’t be wrong to call her the Troll Queen of 2018.

4. Sania Mirza
The star tennis player was trolled by the netizens by asking whether her baby would be Indian or Pakistani. She was also made fun of when she wore a mustard dress for her fashion sense.

5. Sonam Kapoor
The actress was trolled by social media users who thought she was anti-national and anti-Hindu because she spoke out against the Kathua rape case. She was also in spotlight when people said she was being insensitive by celebrating her wedding just 10 weeks after Sridevi’s death.

6. Anshula Kapoor
Arjun Kapoor’s sibling got trolled and received hatred because she didn’t say “Hey Karan, it’s me” on Koffee With Karan, even though Jahnvi Kapoor clarified that Anshula couldn’t hear her and had asked later what the call was about.

7. Swara Bhaskar
Swara was trolled for a scene in the movie Veere di Wedding where she’s seen masturbating. People burst out saying she was a prostitute, and that she’s a shame on the Indian society (progressive, aren’t we?)

8. Radhika Apte
The actress was heavily turned into meme material for doing too many projects with Netflix India. Netflix replied back wittily but the memes outnumbered its responses.

9. Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas
Priyanka and Nick recently got married, and the internet didn’t lose its chance on making jokes on her as she is 10 years older than Jonas. She was heavily accused for marrying him for materialistic goals which were shot down when all celebs stood by her and supported her. Priyanka was trolled for wedding firecrackers while she was against bursting crackers on Diwali in an ad.

10. Amitabh Bachchan
The mega star didn’t escape the clutches of social media either this year. Big B was trolled for bursting crackers on Diwali while fans were expecting him to have a pollution free Diwali.

11. Disha Patani
The actress became a victim of viral internet memes after she wore a Calvin Klein sports bra instead of a blouse on her Diwali lehenga.

12. Esha Gupta
Esha Gupta received hatred from the internet after she was seen showing the middle finger in an Instagram video that she posted. She replied saying how this shows the double standards of our society where it is acceptable if a man does it.

13. Parineeti Chopra
Earlier, there used to be lots of comments on Parineeti being overweight. Now when that issue doesn’t exist, people trolled her for coloring her hair red. Give a person a break, maybe?

14. Mira Rajput
Shahid Kapoor’s wife recently had her screen debut in an advertisement of a beauty product. Social media relentlessly trolled her for her acting skills as well as the fact that she endorsed a cosmetic which consisted many chemicals. She was also lashed at because of a picture where she is walking ahead of a maid holding Zain instead of carrying him herself.

15. Abhishek Bachchan
Junior Bachchan is known for his witty replies on social media, and this time was no different. He was trolled by a Twitter user for still living with his parents, to which he gave a fitting reply.

16. Jahnvi Kapoor
The new kid of B-Town was trolled for celebrating her birthday just 10 days after her mother’s demise.

17. Katrina Kaif
After Priya Varrier’s wink video went viral, people started targeting Katrina Kaif saying she was expressionless. Memes were made on this too (obviously!)

18. Ajaz Khan
Big Boss fame, Ajaz Khan was lashed at by Twitterati when he tweeted saying that he’d lost respect for Big B because he met with the Israeli PM. Fans reminded him of the time when he said Quran was over the Constitution.

Good or bad, the internet has always been the celebrities’ companion and ours as well. While some trolls were totally uncalled for, others gave us memes that were hilarious!

What’s your take on this celebrities ‘on a tight leash’ era of social media?
