Be it for the good or the bad, Virat Kohli often trends on Twitter and other social media. The Indian skipper Virat Kohli is undoubtedly one of the best batsmen of the modern era. Hence, it’s inevitable that the world will be at his feet when he goes about his business on the field.
However, there are times, both on and off the field, when he errs. Hence, social media which affects and influences everybody’s lives on a day to day basis does not spare anybody. Kohli has been subject to trolls on multiple occasions.
Some of the trolls have been because of his wife Anushka Sharma while others have been due to on-field performances and actions or even for putting out some commercial posts. Thus, Kohli is more often than not red-hot on social media. Thus, here are the top five times Kohli was trolled by the fans.
1. ‘You should not live in India then’
It’s no secret that Virat Kohli is an outspoken individual. He speaks his mind more often than not, be it on the field or off it. The Indian captain has also faced a lot of criticism for some of the statements he’s made.
Last year, Kohli launched his own app and had an interactive session on that platform. He was answering and replying to a few questions from the fans. One of the fans wrote that Kohli is pretty overrated and he prefers watching English and Australian batsmen more than the Indian batsmen.
Kohli seemed pretty miffed at the tweet and replied that the fan should not live in India then. “Okay, I don’t think you should live in India then… you should go and live somewhere else no. 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,” Kohli was quoted saying while replying to that tweet.
