Amitabh Bachchan is one of the most active social media users in the Hindi film industry. However, his recent attempt at joking about the coronavirus outbreak fell flush with his followers.
In his recent tweet, the actor mentioned that a bat had broken into his residence Jalsa. He then joked about how the coronavirus does not seem to stop following him. This however, did not land well with his fans.
His fans disputed his statement. One fan wrote, “Not in good taste sir. You have millions of followers. Still we don’t have exact process of human virus spillover. Demonizing bat is last thing we want. Things we know for sure; they are pollinators. They help in pest control. Please revisit it.”
Another wrote, “Sorry to hear this from a reputed personality. Bats are not harmful and there is no need to fear. Kindly understand that they did not spread the virus to human. The reason is still debated. By nature, most animals have got virus in their body.”
Well, it seems like Amitabh Bachchan is not all wise as we speak. We should not joke about corona outbreak and demonize animals for the condition. What do you say?
