After suffering from deteriorating health for over three months, Tamil Nadu chief Minister Jayalalithaa passed away on Monday night at 11:30 pm. Condolences poured in from all avenues, but Kamal Haasan kept his message quite brief. Now, the actor’s tweet has earned the wrath of his Twitter followers, who have blasted Haasan for his apparent curtness. Hasaan wrote in Tamil, “Deep sympathy for those who depend on Jayalalithaa.” This cuts a contrast to the more sentimental tributes paid by the other members of the film fraternity, but it’s unclear whether the actor intended his tweet to sound abrupt.

Twitter users lost no time in letting the actor know how they felt with comments like, “What’s the point in being well learned if there is no decency. Shame. I used to be a fan of yours,” “@ikamalhaasan trying to make up a controversy again.. nothing else,” and, “You’re exponentially becoming a bigger embarrassment almost every time you air an opinion.” Others, however, didn’t seem to understand what the fuss was about. “@ikamalhaasan has condoled in a very decent manner. Why are they barking around?” one person tweeted, while another added, “Excuse me above. Kamal sir respects our former CM. He said don’t want to celebrate his HBD for recovering our former Cm health (sic).”

If the actor did in fact choose to be curt, his response might stem from the fallout between him and Jayalalithaa over the release of his film 2013 Vishwaroopam. The movie was banned in Tamil Nadu under Jayalalithaa’s orders and after considerable controversy, Haasan had said he was considering leaving Tamil Nadu due to the incident. It is unknown whether the actor will attend Amma’s funeral, which will be held in Chennai at 4:30 pm.

        Hey Kamal Sir, I have been your fan all these years ..& I respected you. Now I regret... The great soul CM has departed this earth. You don't even have the most basic humane qualities to visit the departed soul once.??.. You don't believe in GOD I know. You still stand answerable before the natures' court. From this day I will have to refrain seeing your movies. Life is too short my friend!!
