Twinkle, you need a troll repellent anytime soon? Image: Fotocorp
For celebrities, there's no escaping the hawk eyes of Netizens, especially if they belong to the big bad world of Bollywood. Be it socio-political issues or their latest fashion statement, actors are under constant scrutiny for their SM activities. So, when Twinkle Khanna shared her displeasure over her last in-flight experience, she was soon greeted by keyboard warriors, who came out all guns blazing to criticise the actor-turned-author for expressing her opinion. Her husband Akshay Kumar wasn't spared either. *eye roll*
Twinkle aka Mrs Funnybones took to Twitter to talk about the inconvenience she faced mid-air. She complained of killing seven mosquitoes on the flight, and also advised the airlines taking off from Mumbai to provide passengers with a tube of mosquito repellent.
"Airlines taking off from Mumbai- Instead of the life vest could you please put a tube of odomos under the seat- Killed 7 mosquitoes before buckling in this morning-Odds of dying due to dengue may be higher than drowning," Twinkle tweeted in her usual tongue-in-cheek manner.

While this might seem a rather harmless and funny post to mere mortals like us, Tweeple just had no chill.
Seeing the tweet, one troll advised Twinkle to ask her 'nationalist husband' Akshay Kumar to make a movie based on the incident, drawing similarities with his last few releases, including Padman and Toilet: Ek Prem Katha.
Ask ur nationalist husband to make a movie based on this...— Heera (@MdHeera) April 20, 2018
Wait, it doesn't end here. Some trolls even fought among themselves over Akki's citizenship. Really guys!

After a while, they got back to trolling Twinkle for complaining against such a 'non-serious' issue. Errm.
