Mr. Amitabh Bachchan is an iconic actor, role model, respected public figure and a man who enjoys a fan following that has remained undiminished through his long and distinguished career. The hallmarks of Mr. Bachchan's public life have been dignity, empathy and humility. He has enjoyed immense love and respect from within and outside the Indian film industry for his persona, his films and his immeasurable talent.

Kamaal R Khan aka KRK is a self-proclaimed actor, critic and a social media influencer who is known for his regular jibes at films, actors, directors, producers. This person has gained notoriety because of his abusive tweets and videos, his claims about having insider information on the Hindi film industry and its workings. He is allegedly paid to promote films and to be abusive towards certain sections of the film industry. This person has made a business out of trolling, abuse and mental harassment.

It is therefore very disturbing that somebody of Mr. Bachchan's stature actually follows this toxic social media presence. By following him alone Mr. Bachchan provides indirect endorsement for the hate and abuse unleashed by KRK on hapless industry persons through his 'reviews' and slanderous tweets. Case in point is the young Sushant Singh Rajput who tragically passed away a few weeks ago. For the past 3 years or so KRK had made it a point to target and post highly offensive material on the late actor. He has often targeted many actors, directors, producers and studios in his often distasteful videos and posts. Many of his posts about female actors have been misogynistic and on many occasions they have bordered on vulgarity ( often using his portals as a front). 

We live in a democracy and under our constitution one is accorded freedom of speech and freedom of expression along with other fundamental rights. However with freedom comes responsibility. While every individual is entitled to expressing an opinion even if unpopular or hurtful it places the onus on respected individuals like Mr. Bachchan to at least dissuade toxicity and abuse towards the very industry that has deservedly accorded him this iconic stature. 

This is a request to Mr. Amitabh Bachchan to lead the way in unfollowing this person and to hence desist from indirectly encouraging his toxic behaviour that causes unwanted mental harassment to many who are working hard to find their place in the hearts of a film obsessed audience.
