Actor Vivek Oberoi has been slammed by netizens for a post he shared on social media regarding India’s exit in the semi finals of the ICC World Cup 2019.

Vivek on Friday took to Twitter to post a GIF for Indian cricket team’s fans.

In the GIF, an Indian fan is seen walking down the street thinking a lady walking towards him is about to hug him. Instead, the lady goes on to hug another man walking behind him. The lady, here, is denoted as the World Cup.

“This is what happened to Indian fans in the #WC semi finals! #CWC19 #WorldCupSemiFinal #INDvsNZ #indiavsNewzealand”

Vivek Oberoi tweeted his GIF, in context to India’s recent defeat in the World Cup 2019 semifinal match against New Zealand in Manchester on July 9.

However, Vivek’s tweet did not go down well with a section of social media users. Netizens reacted in varying ways to the Inside Edge fame actor.

One user wrote: “Mr. Oberoi, be mature otherwise people will always take you lightly.”

Another netizen requested him to show respect to Team India: “At least they fought for nation and reached the semi finals not like you who’s just getting knocked out with every flop movie. Show some respect to team india.”

One of them linked the connection with his past affair with Aishwarya Rai, saying, “And We guess this is what happened to Vivek Oberoi in “Who will marry Aishwarya Rai” Semi Finals !!”

The Masti actor received major backlash on social media during exit polls in May this year, when he shared a distasteful meme on actors Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan and Salman Khan.
