The controversy related to Navjot Singh Sidhu's comments on the Pulwama attack refuses to die down anytime soon. After #UnsubscribeSonyTV and #sacksidhu, now hashtag #BoycottKapilSharma has started trending on Twitter following Kapil's statements in support of Sidhu.
"For a handful of people, can you blame the entire nation and can you blame an individual? It (the attack) is a cowardly act and I condemn it firmly. Violence is always condemnable and those who did it must be punished," Sidhu had said.
In a video published by ABP News, Kapil Sharma has strongly come out in support of Navjot Singh Sidhu. He can be heard saying that there should be a solid answer to this and these small things like someone should be banned and Sidhu should be sacked from the show should not be given importance.
He added that if Sidhu's exit from the show would curb all the problems, then he himself would have left the show. Kapil also said that by launching some hashtags like #boycottsidhu or #boycottkapilsharmashow, people are just digressing the attention of the youth from the main topic.
There were reports of Archana Puran Singh replacing Navjot Singh Sidhu but Archana and Sidhu were clueless about any such development.
Thousands of social media users are now demanding to boycott Kapil and his show for his stance on the statement made by Navjot Singh Sidhu. Let's take a look at some of the tweets.
