After the Supreme Court, on Monday banned the sale of firecrackers in the Delhi-National Capital Region during the upcoming festive season of Diwali, social media became a battle-field where the two parties (one supporting the verdict and one against it) spoke against each other. Not only commoners but celebrities have also seen harsh reactions from the virtual world on their comments about the verdict. Social media trolls reacted strongly against actress Juhi Chawla. After the judgement, the actress hailed the decision by the Supreme Court. She tweeted, “Brilliant move by Delhi supreme Court, firecrackers banned till November 1! Celebrate this Diwali with Diyas & love.”

Soon after, those who did not support the judgement started trolling the actress. One of them even posted a still from the movie where Juhi Chawla can be seen burning crackers and captioned it asking ‘Have you heard the word hypocrite?’
