Few weeks earlier, Priyanka Chopra had urged people to skip crackers this Diwali, as it makes life difficult for asthma patients. Chopra herself has been suffering from asthma since childhood.
Twitterati soon pointed out the hypocrisy in Priyanka’s stand.

Khair, laws are applicable only for the poor and middle class. Ameer logon ke liye kya kanoon aur kya court. Fuck this shit. Person who got arrested because his kids burst a cracker should learn that he should become a Bollywood star for his kids to light a pataakha.

People also took digs on the Supreme Court order which prohibited bursting crackers during Diwali before 8 pm in the national capital.
Wonderful display of secular, non polluting, noiseless, animal friendly, pre 8 pm fireworks in Bollywoodstan. https://t.co/wTME2NuRCx

And the ‘green crackers‘ directed by the Supreme Court.
Amazing ! Oxygen producing crackers…Pretty sure they’ll reduce pollution a few hundred kms away in Delhi… https://t.co/5Fa08D3gEg

Some wondered if any legal action would be taken against her, considering people were arrested during Diwali for far less.
People were arrested for this. Now is time to arrest, let law take its course! https://t.co/pO839NN7vd
