Ever since the Coronavirus outbreak has affected the world, several celebrities have been trying their level best to spread awareness regarding the same. From Kartik Aaryan, Katrina Kaif, Salman Khan to Akshay Kumar, Shah Rukh Khan and others – celebs have been talking about the concern. But some of them have been backlashed for their opinions too. Recently, it was Divyanka Tripathi, and now it is Amitabh Bachchan.
It all began when Big B shared a tweet on Coronavirus, stating that the darkest day of month, Amavasya may lead to virus, bacteria and all the other evil forces at maximum power. He further stated that clapping hands will reduce the vibrations and help escape this barrier.
“An opinion given: 5 PM, 22nd Mar, ‘amavasya’, darkest day of month; virus, bacteria evil force at max potential & power! Clapping shankh vibrations reduce/ destroy virus potency Moon passing to new ‘nakshatra’ Revati. cumulative vibration betters blood circulation,” read Amitabh Bachchan’s tweet.
Soon, several Twitterati took to the comment section and backlashed the superstar for his superstitious tweet and spreading such false information despite being such an influential figure.
“I demand an apology from @SrBachchan for spreading misinformation through his twitter account putting millions of lives at stake. #AmitabhBachchan,” wrote a user.
