Abhay Deol's post cheering a female golf cart driver at the Mumbai airport backfired on him after the Internet pointed out that it was insensitive of him to let the driver honk at seemingly older passengers, who were walking while he was being driven around in a golf cart. Several Instagram users called Abhay out for not suggesting to the cart driver to wait and let the women walk past the door first. Acknowledging his mistake, Abhay Deol replied on an angry comment: "Fair point... I agree with you. What to do, I'm not perfect. I try my best though, honestly." Several negative comments featured on Abhay's post despite him admitting his mistake. Abhay Deol replied to a few more angry Instagram users saying: "Sense did prevail" and "I did own it up."
Some Instagram users, however, felt that Abhay Deol was being targetted unnecessarily. Why are people making him feel guilty," wrote a concerned fan, to which Abhay replied: "It's all good. Let it pass... I can see their point."
