Man of the moment Virat Kohli has lashed out at people, who have trolled his former girlfriend Anushka Sharma on social media after he powered India into the World T20 semi-finals last night. Virat took to Twitter and posted, “She has only given me positivity,” an angry Virat said in posts on Twitter and Instagram that have gone viral. His tweet was retweeted 10,000 times in the first hour.
On Instagram, Virat posted, “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.”
He further added, “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.”
The Instagram post, with a picture of the word “SHAME” in capital letters written across a wall, had been liked over 50,000 times in the first half hour of Kohli posting it. However, it is learnt that Kohli and Anushka had reportedly ended their relationship earlier this year because of disagreements over marriage.
