Tamil actor Siddharth had recently revealed some YouTube channels spreading fake death news about him. Now, similar news is being spread by rumor-mongers following the death of Hindi actor and Bigg Boss 13 winner Sidharth Shukla.
The actor himself has shared a picture with a 'R.I.P. Siddharth' written on it along with a crying emoji. He captioned it, "Targetted hate and harassment. What have we been reduced to?[sic]" Looking at his response, he seems to have come to the conclusion that his miscreants are intentionally spreading out of hatred.
Mistaken Identity or Intentionally Targeted?
Siddharth is known for his outspoken nature and expresses his views on current affairs without worrying about the consequences. His stands have often rubbed the right-wing sympathisers the wrong way.
Especially, Siddharth is often targeted for his criticism on the BJP, RSS, and his pro-DMK on social media sites. So, there is a possibility of the miscreants intentionally spreading fake news.
Nonetheless, there are also chances of people mistaking Sidharth Shukla for Siddharth. The former passed away on Thursday, 2 September, after suffering a heart attack. A few followers of the Tamil actor on Twitter echoed the same views.
A fan writes, "This is for #SiddarthShukla May be they confused by the name . Bigg boss 13 Winner Siddharth Shukla passed away today. [sic]" Another fans responds, "They should've been confused you with @sidharth_shukla @Actor_Siddharth. [sic]"
However, many of Siddharth's fans have asked him not to give his haters the attention they are trying to gain by spreading fake news. The fans slammed the miscreants while extending their love for the Tamil actor.
