It seems Sonu Nigam has become controversy’s favourite child these days. In the wake of controversies surrounding actor Paresh Rawal and singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya, Nigam, in a series of 24 tweets, spelled out his reason to quit the social media networking platform. From trolls to porn and pseudo intellectuals, he aimed at all the negative aspects of the trends of Twitter and highlighted the shortcomings of the platform due of people’s intolerable attitude.

The war of words first started when Rawal posted a tweet against author Arundhati Roy saying she should be tied to an Army jeep just like a Kashmiri stone pelter. Later, on May 23, Abhijeet’s account was suspended after a few alleged derogatory posts came into light. While many came out in support with the hashtag #IStandWithAbhijeet trending on social media, others pointed out that his recent tweets reeked of “sexual harassment and incitement to violence against a decorated soldier”.
