Vivek Oberoi faced severe backlash on social media for sharing a “tasteless” meme, which brought up Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai's affair in a post regarding the exit polls.
Mumbai: Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi, who will soon be seen in PM Modi's biopic, was slammed by netizens for sharing a “tasteless” meme on the exit polls. The meme made references to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's relationship with Salman Khan, Vivek Oberoi and Abhishek Bachchan.
The stories between Salman Khan, Aishwarya Rai and Vivek Oberoi have been among the most talked about things in the film industry by the media too. All the three main characters have moved on in their own lives, but till date, their story/topic has been grabbing headlines.
Yesterday, after the exit poll results hit the internet, several memes did the rounds on social media and when Vivek came across a post regarding the opinion polls that included his relationship with Aishwarya, he couldn't stop himself from sharing it with his followers on Twitter.
The meme called Salman and Aishwarya's dating life as "Opinion polls", Vivek and Aishwarya's dating life as "Exit polls” and Abhishek and Aishwarya’s married life as "result."
We must say, whoever thought of this is creative no doubt, but we never expected Vivek to share it. “Haha! creative! No politics here...just life" he wrote while accompanying it with a smiley emoticon.
Many people on Twitter found it distasteful, while most of them found it to be quite hilarious.
Soon netizens tore him apart for bringing up Aishwarya's personal life. One user said, "Loser, spare your stupid joke on someone's personal life."
Another one said, "This is in such poor taste.. ones personal life is not to be discussed here.. remember there are 4 individuals who are father/ mother/ brother /sister .. and everyone has moved on .. shame (sic)."
Many were "disgusted" with Vivek's “personal attack on Aishwarya”. We wonder how Abhishek and Salman will react to this.
