Virat Kohli’s anti-crackers publish makes netizens fume

Virat Kohli’s video message asking his followers to not burst crackers throughout Diwali has drawn widespread flak from netizens.

The Workforce India skipper had taken to Instagram and Twitter to ask followers to keep away from fireworks as a way to shield the atmosphere, setting off a flurry of responses from irate social media customers calling him out for hypocrisy.  The state of affairs was made worse by one other video which surfaced on social media exhibiting Kohli celebrating his birthday along with his Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) workforce through the not too long ago concluded IPL event within the UAE, in opposition to the backdrop of fireworks.

“Every cricketer opening and finle ends with tons of firecrackers Why the #ell you don’t preach the same to sponsorers. Why environment is spoiled in 2 days of Diwali celebrations. This is not Netflix series it’s our Diwali (sic).”

RCB clarifies

The IPL franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore has clarified that the celebratory video which surfaced on-line labeled as Kohli’s birthday are actually the visuals of UAE’s Flag Day Celebrations that happen on each November third. It’s not Virat Kohli’s birthday celebration!

 

The official account of RCB posted on Twitter: “Hope you are all enjoying a happy and peaceful Diwali with family and friends. To clarify, the visuals of the fireworks shown in RCB’s recent celebratory video are the archival footage of UAE’s Flag Day celebrations. RCB continues to work hard to protect the environment like we’ve over the years(sic).”
