The incident has taken the internet by storm. Stricter laws against animal cruelty are now in high demand, like never before. Amid the crisis like coronavirus pandemic and cyclone that have already grappled the country, this act was completely uncalled for and a heinous crime that deserves strict punishment.
Many other stars like Shraddha Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Anushka Sharma to name a few, called out this unfortunate incident. Just when the world is tackling a burning issue of #BlackLivesMatter already, ‘#AllLivesMatter including animals’ has taken over the social media feeds. Indeed, it is simply unfortunate how the humble creatures trust humans whole heartedly and we humans fail them miserably; every-single-time.
