From social media being considered as a photo and video-sharing app and connecting with friends and family to it being a breeding pool of troll that functions on hate, we have come to the dark side of the web which often convinces us to swear off social media. While the social media platforms were created to bridge the gap between people, it has now become a tool for sinister things. And for celebrities, troll are now the part of their life. Some ignore it but some, teach us the art of giving it back with their savage replies. (Also Read: Amitabh Bachchan Pens An Emotional Note As Aishwarya And Aaradhya Get Discharge From Hospital)
It was on July 11, 2020, when Amitabh Bachchan had informed that he was tested positive with the novel virus and was admitted to Nanavati Hospital, Mumbai. Later, Abhishek Bachchan had informed that he was also tested positive with the virus and had mild symptoms. While everyone in the Bachchan household had gotten themselves tested after that and the reports of Jaya Bachchan had come negative but Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Aaradhya Bachchan had tested positive in the second round. After quarantine at home for a few days, Aishwarya and Aaradhya were also admitted to the Nanavati Hospital.
On July 27, 2020, Amitabh Bachchan had penned a long note on his official blog on Tumblr and in one section, he had hit back to the trolls, who had wished death for him. In his long note, Big B had written, "They write to tell me ..“I hope you die with this Covid”. Hey Mr Anonymous, you do not even write your Father’s name because you do not know who Fathered you. There are only two things that can happen... either I shall die or either I shall live... if I die you wont get to write your diatribe anymore, by weathering your remark on a celebrity name... pity... for, the reason of your writing to be noticed was, because you took a swipe at Amitabh Bachchan... that shall no longer exist!!"

Giving a hard-hitting message by focusing on the power of his 90+ million followers, Amitabh Bachchan had continued, "If by God’s grace I live and survive you shall have to be ‘weathering’ the ‘swipe’ storm, not just from me, but on a very conservative level, from 90+ million followers... I have yet to tell them to... but if I survive I shall... and let me tell you they are a force incensed... they traverse the entire World... from the West to the East from the North to the South... and they are not just the Ef of this page... that extended family shall in the flash of an eye become ‘extermination family’!!! All I shall say to them is... May you burn in your own stew!!"
This isn't the first time that the Bachchan clan has been targeted by the trolls. Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan have often been victims of trolls for their professional as well as personal life. Abhishek leaves no chance to turn down the trolls with his witty replies. And in an interview with the SpotboyE, Aishwarya had once talked about Abhishek’s reaction to the trolls and was quoted as saying, “Abhishek does what he has to do or what he feels like doing… to each his own. There have been instances where he has been silent for years and made a choice to remain silent and then once a while he decides to engage and then he does. There is no telling if he will or if he won’t, it is a matter of at that time.” (Also Read: Shweta Bachchan Nanda Is Affected By The 'Absence' Of Family, Since the Bachchans Are Hospitalised)
We wish speedy recovery for Mr Bachchan and the family. And hope that people become a little more sensitive towards the celebrities or humans, in general!
