PR managers of Virat Kohli seem to have landed the prolific Indian batsmen in trouble after he shared a lame post on his social media accounts about himself riding a mock bike amidst reports of a helicopter crash with General Bipin Rawat onboard in the Coonoor region of Tamil Nadu.
Taking to Twitter, Kohli shared a picture of himself where he was seen sitting on an imitation bike, wearing a helmet and wearing a frowned expression on his face. His tweet read: “Once upon a time. #80skids #backinthedays
However, this did not sit well with the social media users, who slammed the cricketer for being oblivious to the current affairs and indulging in promotions and advertisements when the country was fretting over the fate of its first Chief of Defence Staff.

Another aggrieved Twitter user condemned Virat Kohli, stating that he could not find time tweeting on the helicopter crash but had time for posting irrelevant tweets.
U cannot tweet on plain crash but u are busy tweeting these irrelevant tweets. What a shame 🤢🤢 https://t.co/Y33lucx5EY— Sudhanshu Verma (@Sudhans56912180) December 8, 2021
Still another Twitter user lambasted Kohli and advised him to sack his PR team for not being abreast of the latest news and posting lame tweets in the midst of a tragedy.
Hey Virat, when you come online to post such lame shit, do take pains to read latest news. And if you PR team handles your SM, sack it now. https://t.co/Ob8Ab4azq5— Vipra Shrivastava ☀️ (@Vipra_s) December 8, 2021
“CDS Bipin Rawat is in critical condition Nd here u are continuing to do your nonsense activities,” said another Twitter user, asking Kohli if he has any shame left.
