The death of former Prime Minister, Atal Bihari Vajpayee on August 16, sent a wave of grief over the nation. Several public personalities, politicians, Bollywood film stars and the general public, took to social media to collectively grieve about the loss of the parliamentarian.
Salman Khan, who has been away in Malta, shooting for his next ‘Bharat’, sent out a condolence tweet five days late. “Truly a sad feeling to have lost a great leader, noble politician, orator and an exceptional human being like Atal Ji,” Khan tweeted.

While the star may have had his reasons for the delayed post, online trolls were quick to react and poke fun at the actor. Bringing their funny side to the fore, some users took jibes at the star presumably in all good humour, but there were a few who also expressed their disappointment.
