#ShameOnKaranJohar was trending all over India on Friday as fans of veteran actor Shah Rukh Khan took offence when his longtime collaborator and almost bestie, Karan Johar shared a tweet comparing Khan's movie with Kesari.

It all started when KJo liked a post talking about how the half day collections of Akshay Kumar starrer Kesari are significantly better than Zero's despite releasing close to Holi. The post further pitted the two stars addressing Khan as 'Gayrukh', a rather bad homophobic pun, we say.

The tweet, which downgrades Shah Rukh Khan went from bad to worse after it was ‘accidently ‘liked’ by Johar making the netizens go all ballistic starting the #ShameOnKaranJohar trend and even going as far as to calling Johar 'snake' and a boycott for 'Kesari' movie.

Although Karan apparently corrected his mistake by unliking the tweet in some time, the damage was already done as screenshots of KJo liking a tweet that insulted Shah Rukh had gone viral on the micro-blogging site.

Fans who are super upset with Karan Johar are actually saying one should stop watching the films produced under the banners of Dharma Productions. In fact, the netizens are even saying people shouldn’t watch Kalank. This particular post is going viral for all the wrong reasons.

However, Karan clarified a little later that there was some technical problem with his twitter account and he did not even read what was in the tweet but looks like SRK fans are not ready to forgive him yet.

Shah Rukh Khan’s last film Zero with Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma couldn’t create the excepted business at the box office. On the other hand, Akshay Kumar’s Kesari which is being produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions has witnessed a huge start at the ticket windows.

Fans of both the actors have been comparing the stardom and success and well, Karan Johar liking the tweet has created chaos on twitter.
