Don’t forward pics of Lord Shiva: Netizens irked by Sonu Sood’s tweet on Maha Shivratri

Mumbai: Bollywood actor Sonu Sood also known as Messiah of Migrants,
on Thursday took to his social media to extend greetings to his fans and followers on the auspicious occasion of Maha Shivratri. However, his tweet seems to have struck the wrong chord as it did not go well with many.

Sonu Sood’s Maha Shivratri tweet

Taking to his Twitter, Sonu Sood share a message to all his fans on the occasion of Maha Shivratri. He urged his fans to celebrate the occasion by helping other people and not by forwarding photographs of Lord Shiva on this day.

He wrote, “Shiv bhagvaan ki photo forward karke nahin kisi ki madad karke Maha Shivratri manaen. Om Namah Shivaay.”

Why #WhoTheHellAreUSonuSood trended on Twitter?

Well, a section of Twitter users did not agree with him and started criticising him for his point of view. As soon as Sonu dropped his tweet, Twitter exploded with hate messages for the actor. Several Twitter users took offence to his words and asked why should Sonu Sood or anyone tell them how to celebrate a festival. Soon enough, the hashtag #WhoTheHellAreUSonuSood started trending on Twitter.

Check out how netizens reacted:

Hours after his tweet, Sonu Sood shared another post, this time a photograph of Lord Shiva. But he received huge flak for that too.

Meanwhile, the actor has been actively participating in humanitarian causes over the past year, after having helped migrant labourers reach home during last year’s lockdown. On the work front, Sonu Sood will be next seen in Telugu film Acharya and Bollywood film Prithviraj.
