Now #ShameOnKaranJohar is trending on the micro-blogging site, where fans are calling out the director for liking a tweet that insults his supposed BFF. Please bear with me and I apologise for any inconvenience! The bottom-line of the tweet besides using offensive language was that Akshay Kumar was a bigger star than SRK and the former star's partial holiday release Kesari opened much bigger than the latter's holiday release Zero. "Sorting it out asap!", he tweeted. Shah Rukh has since responded to the incident.

Filmmaker Karan Johar has explained to his fans and followers on Twitter that his account is malfunctioning, after screenshots of an abusive tweet directed at Shah Rukh Khan, purportedly "liked" by Karan, were circulated online. Although, ahem, there was a lot begging to be read between the lines of his "clarification".

Shah Rukh was quick to offer a defence of Karan. But then, he also pointed out that "mistakes are natural" - and that, ladies and gentlemen, is what you call the quintessential SRK charm. Karan is one of the producers of Kesari. "Just remove SRK's movies from cobra productions filmography and see where it actually stands", wrote another. And SRK, the Badshah of Bollywood with his large heart, should be able to take failures in his stride as well as he takes successes, right?

What one man wrote in favour of Akshay Kumar was derogatory towards Shah Rukh. Realising the strong reaction from SRK fans, Karan soon made a tweet saying that he did not "like" any such tweet, and it was a technical error.
