Can People Stop The Sick Jokes About Amitabh, Rekha & Jaya When The Worry Should Be COVID?

Posted: July 13, 2020

It’s disgusting the kind of insinuating jokes and memes people are making after Amitabh Bachchan tested COVID-19 positive and Rekha’s security guard did too.

The latest addition to the list of COVID-19 affected people is the legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan and his son Abhishek Bachchan. 

Yesterday through a twitter update Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan informed the world that they have been tested COVID-19 positive and have been safely shifted to a hospital. 

Soon after this ‘Rekha‘ started trending on Twitter on a completely different and bizarre note. 

Earlier, the veteran actor’s security guard had tested COVID-19 positive, and a BMC notice was pasted outside her residence. NDTV reported that the actress’s bungalow was sealed. As soon as the news of Bachchan testing positive was announced, social media users made Rekha one of the top trends on Twitter along with Amitabh and Abhishek. 

Why? Because as humans we have lost all sensitivity!

Why have we gotten so low?

Now everyone knows that Rekha and Amitabh Bachchan have a past that never got a proper closure or acceptance from both the stars. 

Owing to this, the two different and unrelated incidents have got people into a tizzy, making insensitive memes about the two, making nasty insinuations.

Getting affected by the CoronaVirus is a grave issue, especially at the age, these stars are now. Not just physically, but the disease also affects the person mentally. Instead of understanding the gravity of the issue, making memes and jokes at this time to troll a person just shows how low we have gotten in terms of sensitivity. 

Making fun of women typical of our society

Not just Rekha, right now memes are being made even about Jaya Bachchan. Some meme-makers got so low that they have made memes about ‘Jaya not satisfying Amitabh hence he still visits Rekha’. 

Like seriously! I mean what Amitabh, Rekha and Jaya Bachchan do in their life is their private matter. 

It’s not fair to make fun of these women and call it ‘content’. This disgusting behaviour is just like actors Rhea Chakroborty and Kriti Sanon were trolled earlier for not showing their grief publicly on the death of Sushant Singh Rajput. 

We as a society need to start minding our own business. Which celebrity is visiting whose house, who are they dating? Who are they grieving about? These should not be anyone else’s business.  And certainly not use this as fodder for making ‘content’.
