Rishi Kapoor’s ‘We will BLUE you away’ tweet for Pakistan cricket team gets slammed by Twitterati

But amidst all the trolling, a quick look through the reactions Rishi Kapoor’s tweet garnered, you’ll stumble upon a heartwarming tweet-exchange between a Pakistani Twitter user and an Indian.

Unless you have been living under a rock, you’d know that Pakistan celebrated sweet victory over England in the first semi-final match of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017. The team, lead by Sarfraz Ahmed, has now entered the Champions Trophy finals and depending on who wins the India-Bangladesh match in Edgbaston on June 15, will be facing either of the teams later. But that India is yet to reach the finals hasn’t stopped many on Twitter, including Rishi Kapoor, from taking digs at arch-rivals Pakistan.

“Get ready to be BLUED now! We will BLUE you away!” he tweeted after congratulating the team on the win, and no surprises for guessing, got trolled by Pakistani cricket fans in return.

Following the match on June 14, Kapoor took to Twitter and seemed his ‘no holds barred, no words minced’ self, when he wrote: “Congratulations Pakistan! You enter finals? Wow! Good to see you wearing our colour BLUE! Get ready to be BLUED now! We will BLUE you away!” In no time, his post had attracted people whose reactions varied from supporting him to those criticising the tenor of his post.
