- Neha Kakkar was recently trolled for crying on Indian Idol
- Himansh Kohli jumped to her defence and wrote an angry post
- "Have been noticing a lot of distasteful trolling against Neha," he said
Himansh Kohli, who is rumoured to be dating Neha Kakkar, jumped to the singer's defence after she was ruthlessly trolled by a section of the Internet for visibly getting teary-eyed on an episode of Indian Idol. "Lately, I have been noticing a lot of distasteful trolling against Neha. I would have never said this in public if it was just a humorous act. What disgusts me is that people themselves don't want to support a cause," read an excerpt from Himansh's angry-worded post on Instagram. "Then they don't leave any stone unturned to stop someone from doing so. If these trolls think that they can hide their ignorance and inhuman attitude beneath objectionable jokes, they are wrong," he added. Neha, who gained popularity after participating in the second season of the music reality show, joined the judges' panel this year. In a recent episode, she broke down after a contestant shared his tumultuous journey of overtaking struggles.
We also spotted Neha Kakkar's comment on Himansh Kohli's post, which read: "All I can say is that you're my He-Man and I'm blessed to have you in my life. Love you."
Himansh Kohli, who often trends for his loved-up posts featuring Neha, rounded off his note with words of encouragement for the actress: "Nehuu, don't let anything affect the best person I know. Your success, your care, your love, speaks louder than a few jokers. Keep inspiring us all."
Lately, I have been noticing a lot of distasteful trolling against @nehakakkar . I would have never said this in public if it was just a humorous act. What disgusts me is that people themselves don't want to support a cause. And then they don't leave any stone unturned to stop someone from doing so. If these trollers think that they can hide their ignorance and inhuman attitude beneath objectionable jokes, they are wrong. In the era where most are narcissists, it is hard to find a selfless person like her. She has worked very hard to become who she is today and to maintain it, is another task. Nehuu, don't let anything affect the best person I know. Your success, your care, your love, speaks louder than a few jokers. Keep inspiring us all. Love, #Heeman #NehaKakkar #Himanshkohli #StopTrolling #BadTrolls
After the episode in question was aired, Neha Kakkar was termed as a "cry baby" and made to feature in several Twitter trolls. The show has also been criticised for selecting contestants on the basis of their troubled pasts and not sheer talent. Himansh's post comes a day after Neha responded to the troll with a lengthy post, saying: "Getting trolled for crying! Next time please troll me for my loud laughter as well. In fact why don't you troll me for helping the needy people?"
