Sonam Gets Trolled Again - This Time for the National Anthem

Sometimes no matter what you do, trolls just love doing what they do best - troll you. That’s exactly what happened with Sonam Kapoor. The actress has been a victim to online trolls since a long time and now it’s her comment on trolling that got her into trouble.

Sonam wrote an article for the Hindustan Times’ campaign, ‘Let’s Talk About Trolls’, an awareness drive on online abuse and bullying. Sadly, she even got trolled for that - and that too for just one line which was shared on social media.

The actress begins her column, saying, “You might call me a ‘bimbo’, a ‘naachne wali’, but you know what, I’m a terribly self-assured woman. I have a strong sense of self and I don’t need you to tell me who I am.”

A quote from Kapoor’s piece was shared online that read, “I love my country but for some of you — and you’re the bigots, not me — I become ‘anti-national’ only because I ask questions or choose to be critical. Listen to the national anthem… recall the line you heard as kids, ‘Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Issai…”.

And that’s where the trolls got their fodder.

The trolls went on to a level where the words national anthem started trending on Twitter. But Sonam had a perfect comeback for them.

Keep going, girl!
