There would be hardly anyone from the Indian film industry who would not have come under the scanner of Kamaal R Khan aka KRK. The self-proclaimed film critic has ridiculed almost everyone and has bashed movies on Twitter. But finally, all got a respite from his abusive tweets as Twitter suspended KRK’s handle. Known for being loud-mouthed, KRK didn’t stop here. He further threatened Twitter to commit suicide if his account doesn’t get restored. On his another Twitter handle with the name KRK Box Office, he issued a statement which read, “I have spent four years and lots of money to build my six million followers account on Twitter. Therefore, I will definitely go to court on Twitter to ask them to reimburse me the money and time I have spent on my account so far.”
Well known social media expert Subin John, owner of smdude.com, took a jibe at the entire controversy following KRK’s account suspension. Subin said, “I don’t understand what made Twitter wait for so long before suspending his account permanently. He has been breaking the policies of Twitter since long and this time he actually crossed the limits. Every user mandatorily needs to maintain his/her twitter account under the mentioned policies.”
KRK once again crossed the level of disgust as he openly threatened to commit suicide on the social media platform if the twitter does not restore his account within a span of 15 days. The widely circulated press release said, “I request @TwitterIndia and staff Ms Mahima Kaul, Viral Jani and Mr Taranjeet Singhto restore my account within 15 days. 1st they did charge me millions of rupees and then suddenly suspended my account. So am depressed because they have cheated me. If they won’t restore my account I will commit suicide and all these people will be responsible for my death.”
The entire hullabaloo was initiated after Kamal Khan revealed the climax of Advait Chandan directorial Secret Superstar which released on Diwali this year. Things worsened when he openly criticized the movie by calling it a “deadly slow 2.5 hours torture (sic)” followed by a personal attack on Aamir Khan. In a follow-up tweet, he disgraced Aamir saying, “if u r not a good father or ur father was not a good father whom u never respected then don’t say dat we don’t love children.”
It was only later that Aamir filed a complaint in reference to the remark which led to the suspension of Kamal’s Twitter account.
Adding to his opinion, Subin John, highly criticised the action saying, “revealing the climax of a commercial movie on a social media platform is extremely unethical. I completely condemn such unprofessional behaviour. Moreover, threatening to commit suicide on Twitter, a platform where almost 5 million people follow him, is unprofessional and nonsensical.”
