It’s become common now for celebrities to get trolled. In the recent example, a troller targeted Arjun Kapoor on Twitter by calling him ‘Rapist’ ‘Creep’ and a ‘Criminal’.
It so happened that a Twitter user shared a certain listicle about ‘products of nepotism’ which included Arjun Kapoor among others and captioned it, “[email protected] luks like a creep gives vibes of a criminal n a rapist he should be out of #bollywood asap n fresh talent b welcomd #arjunkapoor”
Now these offensive words would have made anyone angry but Arjun Kapoor chose to remain calm and gave a befitting reply on the tweet.
He wrote, “This is an all time low at trolling I feel…a woman, a girl shamelssly and causally using the term rapist isn’t trolling it’s saddening….”

The lady who tried to mess with the actor later deleted her tweet.
Arjun Kapoor had talked about trolls on social media while speaking to Hindustan Times. He had said: “First of all, social media has no bearing of male or female. It acts as a kick for people, who get pleasure out of hiding behind a keyboard. There is no binary in the trolling happening — males troll females and vice versa.”
He had added: “I find it appalling, but that is society. It is shameful, but the reality is that trolling exists. You will never be able to stop it, unfortunately, because that is the power of social media. You can say what you want to and get away with it. This can’t be called a violation, as it’s everyone’s freedom of speech.”
On the work front, Arjun will be seen next teaming up with his Ishaqzaade co-star Parineeti Chopra in YRF’s Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar.
