8 Times Bollywood Celebs Stood Up Against Bullies

“Bullying is a vital part of every ecosystem. It teaches kids resilience.”

– Frank Gallagher, Shameless

While bullying may be considered wrong, you can’t argue that being bullied is the best way to learn how to stand up for yourself. For celebrities, it’s no different. They get trolled on social media all the time, but most celebs choose to ignore their bullies, until the day they snap. While Twitter can be merciless to them, celebs are slowly learning to fight back against trolls. Sometimes, they are also supported by other celebs against the massive hate directed at them, while some manage to handle the situation well individually. Take a look at the celebrities who stood up to their bullies brilliantly:

Sonam Kapoor
The Neerja actress took to Twitter to condemn the Paryushan meat ban last year. Needless to say, she received a lot of flak from Twitter users, mainly because she called out the ‘misogyny’ behind the ban. People trolled her for confusing ‘intolerance’ with ‘misogyny’, but Sonam hit back with another post which clarified her statement.


Sonakshi Sinha
Kamaal R Khan
is known for his offensive chauvinistic tweets, and people usually take the ‘silence is golden’ approach when it comes to this popular troll. But Sonakshi was having none of it. So, when KRK decided to pick on her, she called out to him with a harsher comment, and the troll was forced to apologize. It was a Twitter miracle!


Abhishek Bachchan
It’s no secret that Abhishek is often trolled on Twitter. But the success rate that the actor supposedly lacks in Bollywood (as his haters keep saying), he makes up for on the social media portal. Abhishek generally responds to the hate, engaging in long, hilarious Twitter wars, where he always emerges victorious. Seriously, you should follow him on Twitter, just for his snarky, sarcastic replies.


Shruti Seth
While PM Modi’s #SelfieWithDaughter campaign seemed like a great idea at first, Seth pointed out the hypocrisy behind it, and made several valid points. But a tweet against the PM led to a series of attacks on the actress on Twitter. Seth responded with an open letter, and also a Twitter post letting her trolls know that she wasn’t affected by all the criticism.


Alia Bhatt
Alia became the butt of all jokes after her goof-up on Koffee with Karan. Memes and SMSes followed, mocking the actress’s intelligence. But Alia took it all in her stride and also made a comeback video with the help of AIB, in which she mocks herself. Watch the video, titled ‘Genius of the Year’, a spin on the Alia-starrer Student of the Year, here:


Twinkle Khanna
Mrs Funnybones is our favorite celebrity on Twitter. Her tweets are smart, honest, and her comebacks are simply hilarious. From calling out Rajdeep Sardesai for his sexist attitude, to lashing out at Naseeruddin Shah for comments against her late father, to putting trolls in their proper place, the woman owns Twitter. Read what she had to say about Twitter trolls:

Deepika Padukone
There’s no doubt that TOI is one of the most sexist and sensationalist publications in India. Two years ago, they posted a cleavage-baring image of Deepika Padukone, which was later shared on their Twitter handle. In a fit of rage, Deepika called them out for their sexist behavior and hypocrisy. Following her tweets, TOI removed the post from their timeline.


Sona Mohapatra
Not many celebrities have the spine to stand up to Salman Khan – the King of B-town. Even when he made the ‘raped woman’ comment, celebs decided to keep mum. But Sona Mohapatra was not one of them. Not only did she post a tweet against the Sultan actor, she even slammed his fans who trolled her for the tweet.

Kudos to these celebrities. Show them what you got!
