Arshad Warsi, who was last seen in Pagalpanti, is one of the most active users on the internet. From sharing updates about his film to sharing updates about his life, the actor makes sure that he keeps his fans posted about everything. Recently, the actor posted a meme that offered a solution to the deadly Coronavirus epidemic and was badly slammed for his insensitivity.
The actor shared a meme which showed a scene from his film Munna Bhai. In it, the scene from the film where Arshad Warsi picked up a Chinese guy and beats him with a bat was shared as a solution for Coronavirus. The meme read, “Steps To Follow to Stop Corona Virun From Spreading”
Arshad shared the meme with a caption that read, “My friend just sent me this very valuable info…” and was bashed for it severely.

People have become so sensitive now a days 😐 can't take a joke on social media, but pay in thousands to sit and listen to abusive bullshit and call it comedy 🤷🏻♂️

It’s a good scene from an epic movie. But in the context here, you do know that It’s racist. Right?

For those of you who don’t know, Coronavirus is a pandemic virus that has originated from China. People have died in a huge number in China and the virus is now spreading worldwide. Actors like Sunny Leone and Ranbir Kapoor have urged their fans to be careful as well.
Now, let’s see if Arshad reacts to this backlash or he just deletes his tweet in the coming time.
