Twitter Berates Virat Kohli After He Tells Fan To Leave India

Virat Kohli facing wrath from the fans is a very rare phenomenon in India. In this cricket-obsessed, cricketers are treated are demigods and Kohli gets the same treatment. In fact, the way Kohli is playing at the moment, he is arguably the most famous cricketer in the country.

Not surprisingly, he always receives adulation and lavish praise from the cricket fraternity. But recently, he found himself at the receiving end of a major backlash on social media. It all happened after he asked a cricket fan to ‘leave India’ after he said that he likes watching Australian and English batsmen more than the Indian ones.

Not impressed with the comment, Virat Kohli did not hold back and said:

“I don’t think you should live in India, go and live somewhere else. Why are you living in our country and loving other countries? I don’t mind you not liking me, but I don’t think you should live in our country and like other things. Get your priorities right.”

But Kohli’s response is not going down well with others. Consequently, Kohli’s response has drawn a huge amount of criticism from social media users. Here are some of the reactions:
