Try trolling a celebrity nowa­days and tell us if you don’t get beaten black and blue. Vir­tu­ally, of course. With the last of who we’d imag­ine would go all guns blaz­ing on so­cial media — san­skari babuji Alok Nath him­self — we re­alised there’s no hold­ing back celebs any­more when nasty tweets come their way.

While Nath us­ing the word ‘b***h’ in a re­ply to ac­tivist Kavita Kr­ish­nan af­ter she slammed PM Modi’s #Selfie WithaDaugh­ter cam­paign raised many a brow, here are oth­ers whose fire­ball tweets don’t come as a sur­prise.

Rishi Kapoor: The vet­eran ac­tor is known for giv­ing it back to users who try to troll him. “You sure are a loser man. So frus­trated.No hu­mour. So down­mar­ket. Get a life! D***head,” he had tweeted in re­ply to a troll.

Vishal Dad­lani: An ac­tive Twit­ter ac­tivist, the singer­com­poser shot back at a user who said he should re­frain from abus­ing, say­ing, “You shouldn’t be an up­tight, prud­ish a**wipe on one ei­ther. Now f*** off !”

Son­akshi Sinha: The ac­tor set­tled score with the undis­puted king of foul words on Twit­ter, ac­tor Ka­maal R Khan, when he con­ducted a poll on which fe­male ac­tor in Bol­ly­wood has the best der­riere. Son­akshi tweeted: “Please RTT this if u think @ka­maal­rkhan is a woman dis­re­spect­ing waste of space and de­serves to be hung up­side down and given 4 tight slaps.”

Sal­man Khan: The ac­tor speaks his mind, both on so­cial media and off it. The last he lashed out was when a fake han­dle in his name went on to abuse his con­tem­po­raries. “To put another ac­tor, friend down,down is no fan of mine, don’t like,” he wrote.

Add to that ac­tors Sonam Kapoor and Ab­hishek Bachchan who re­cently si­lenced their de­trac­tors (see tweets), and the list is com­plete!
