Fans on social media did not like the act of MS Dhoni's fan

The individual's act of prioritising witnessing MS Dhoni over paying daughters' school fees did not land well among the netizens. Many users expressed their stringent opinions about it. One commenter wrote, "This person is from different world of stupidity.” Another one added, "Priorities! Dhoni will not help this father’s kids, to get education! Wth is this? We stopped going to watch #CSK in #chennai as the ticket prices were high! Ppl shd understand it’s all business, if the demand drops prices will automatically come down!”. A third commenter added, “Dhoni will himself be disappointed by your approach. Please pay your children school fee rather than spending money to watch Dhoni.”

Noting stern reactions some brought out that these comments are based on the hypotheses that the person could not afford to pay his daughters' fees, and may not be true. “This guy didn’t mean he cannot afford to pay school fees, these days buying an IPL ticket is reachable only for the rich. Spending 64k on IPL tickets means he can lavishly spend on entertainment. So don’t feel pity for people like this and make it a discussion” opined one commenter.
