Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor, on Wednesday, put off her Instagram comments option claiming that the “hate and negativity was triggering her friends and family.” The actress has been at the center of trolls networks after her post on the death of 20 Indian soldiers in a violent face-off with Chinese troops in LAC at Galwan Valley in Ladakh.
Sonam posted an Instagram story, which read, “Hey guys I usually don’t shy away from hate and negativity because I feel sorry for the people who have so much hate in their hearts as it harms them more than me. But it’s triggering my friends and family. I understand that they are paid bots and people who are pushing a conservative right-wing agenda. But right now is the time to speak about the lives lost at the borders and the lives affected by the lockdown. I’m turning off my comments.”
Taking to social media to convey her message about the Indian soldiers attaining martyrdom, Sonam had written, “20 Indian soldiers have died in a “violent face-off” with Chinese troops at Galwan Valley in Ladakh, the army said on Tuesday. The Army statement on Tuesday confirmed the death of a Colonel and two jawans and spoke of “casualties on both sides”. India blamed the clashes on “an attempt by the Chinese side to unilaterally change the status quo there”, rebutting China’s claims that Indian soldiers crossed the border.”
Sonam spent most of her lockdown period at her in-laws’ house in the national capital with her husband Anand Ahuja. She returned to Mumbai on June 8, a day before her 35th birthday. The actress has always been quite active on social media and her posts often get a lot of attention from trollers. She also faced heavy trolling because of an old Koffee With Karan video featuring her surfaced online. The video was of the Rapid Fire round, in which the actress was clueless when she was asked a question about Sushant Singh Rajput, who committed suicide on Sunday.
