Amid the much ruckus and chaos going on because of the CAA in Jamia Milia University, Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar claimed to have accidentally liked a tweet which appreciated the police on stopping the protests against the citizenship law.
Akshay Kumar said that he had unliked it instantly after he realized but several screenshots were all over the micro-blogging website.
Regarding the ‘like’ on the tweet of Jamia Milia students, it was by mistake. I was scrolling and accidentally it must have been pressed and when I realised I immediately unliked it as In no way do I support such acts.— Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) December 16, 2019
Akshay Kumar tweeted, “Regarding the 'like' on the tweet of Jamia Milia students, it was by mistake. I was scrolling and accidentally it must have been pressed and when I realized I immediately unliked it. As In no way do I support such acts.”
The tweet which he ‘accidentally’ liked was captioned as “Badhai ho...Jamia mein Azaadi mili hai (congratulations, Jamia has won independence)." The video showed the police in riot gear on the campus and not a student in sight.”
Akshay Kumar attracted a lot of trolls and within half an hour 1800 people retweeted it.
