A user called Mannu Yadav read, "Half day colls [collections] of Kesari on Holi day (which is worse than pre diwali day) [is] greater than Zero full festival day collection." The tweet further compared the stardom of Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar. The user used expletives in his tweet to describe the same.

Looks like it was probably liked mistakenly because the tweet doesn't exist on Karan Johar's Twitter 'Likes' section now.

As #ShameOnKaranJohar trended, a lot of Shah Rukh Khan fans, Salman Khan fans, Akshay Kumar fans started taking sides and attacking Karan Johar. One user wrote: "The man who shows believe on you always and support you in starting of your carrer who once ready to take bullet for you and now you are disrespected that person only #ShameOnKaranJohar its really very shameful @karanjohar you should ask apology for this act."

The other user wrote: "Having 1 priceless friend like @BeingSalmanKhan is better than having 100 worthless friends like @karanjohar !! #ShameOnKaranJohar"

One fan wrote: "I feel that the self trolling abusers in Akki Sir fans are paid by Karan Sir. Karan Sir must've been monitoring the work of his boys and accidentally liked the tweet. #ShameOnKaranJohar"
