Virushka garbage video has opened a Pandora’s box that refuses to close. Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli are attacked by the mother-son duo for the video
It all started when actress Anushka Sharma schooled a man for throwing plastic on the streets and her husband, Virat Kohli recorded the video and uploaded it on Instagram which later went viral, obviously.
After the video went viral, the man did not take it well and took to social media too. He wrote a post slamming the couple for shaming him online. He wrote,
Disclaimer: i have no desire to gain any mileage from this post of mine… Horrible! So I happened to carelessly Litter a sq mm of plastic while driving ! A car passing by rolls their window down and there we have our wonderful @anushkasharma ranting and yelling like a crazy roadside person! While I’m apologetic for my carelessness , Mrs Anushka Sharma Kohli a little etiquette and politeness in ur dialogue wouldn’t have made u a lesser star !! There are all kinds of manners and hygiene .. verbal etiquette is one of them ! The garbage that mistakenly went out of the window of my "luxury car"… Was way less then the garbage that came out from your mouth… From ur "luxury car's" window… Or the trashy mind @virat.kohli to shoot and post this online… For whatever gains… Now thats some serious trash!!!
It did not end there, the menace continued as the man’s mother took to the platform as well and penned down a scathing post talking about privacy intrusion, character-shaming etc.
“Anushka Sharma Virat Kohli the last thing we would want is to get publicity out of your cheap STUNT in the name of CLEANLINESS! You both posted a video for your fans and followers by VIOLATING Basic Rights to privacy and you shamed my son in the video as well in your post content. You both may be who you are in your fields, with millions of followers and all the PR backing you…you may be paid for your campaigning or maybe doing it for sheer publicity.
As a mother, I would like to state that you have not only shamed my son Arhhan Singh on social media by not blurring his face, but you’ve also exposed him to unwanted hostility….and danger from fanatics for such a small thing that you claim he has done but have no proof of anyways? I am concerned about my son’s SAFETY !!!
How dare you crush somebody’s image/and morale and reputation and expose him to public hate, a boy who is on the verge of starting his ventures, ..just to prove what good citizens you both are to increase your fan following? How dare you??
If you both really cared or bothered about cleanliness, then you would actively do something about all the garbage in your own lane..you would make a noise and use your VOICE to urge the municipal authorities to take action at least in the lane where you live, to start with, which you have n’t. Posting videos of fake bravado just to fool your followers.
If your intention was genuine then you would pull over and politely correct the person for littering IF THEY DID in a decent and real manner…and not by displaying such a rude and arrogant attitude, and then posting it for the world to see! You have caused a lot of grief with your post & this is morally very wrong.
You may be #AnushkaSharma or #ViratKohli in your house or on screen & the field…but on the streets, you are just a citizen trying to correct another… DO IT WITH KINDNESS ….fear karma. And just FYI, he did not react badly, not cause of who you both are..couldn’t care less, but only because he has a decent upbringing! Unlike people like you, who seem to think that you are the empowered ones to talk and treat people as you wish!”
This recent spat tells us that it is very important to do the right thing but doing it in the wrong way might land you in trouble! What’s your take? Privacy intrusion or social policing?
