Shame Tweet: What Is Getting Virat Kohli's Goat?

After getting the Indian team almost single-handedly over the line in Sunday night’s T20 World Cup win over Australia, cricketer Virat Kohli would have thought Monday morning was when he could put his feet up and rest a bit.

Alas, enter the average Indian troll who could not (yet again) resist taking a dig at Kohli’s (former) girlfriend, the actor Anushka Sharma. Sharma has had quite the weird relationship with the average Indian cricket fan with the latter almost inevitably laying the blame at her doorstep whenever Kohli even gets the minor sneezing bout.

It has actually happened on multiple occasions before:

If rumours are to be believed the cricketer-actor pair recently parted ways but all that be damned because Kohli really took a shine to trolls this afternoon. Defending Sharma, he put out the following message on Instagram.

Shame on those people who have been having a go at anushka for the longest time and connecting every negative thing to her. Shame on those people calling themselves educated. Shame on blaming and making fun of her when she has no control over what i do with my sport. If anything she has only motivated and given me more positivity. This was long time coming. Shame on these people that hide and take a dig. And i dont need any respect for this post. Have some compassion and respect her. Think of how your sister or girlfriend or wife would feel if someone trolled them and very conveniently rubbished them in public. #nocompassion#nocommonsense 

Sharma’s social media accounts have not registered warnings on our radar but Kohli’s latest outburst (this time virtual) has really kicked up a storm on social media. While Kolhi clearly mentions he doesn’t need ‘respect’ for the post, a lot of us have unwittingly given him more than his fair share.

Here are a few reactions on social media:
