Dinesh Karthik said that when people post on social media, they do not realize the seriousness of it.
Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik has said that people do not realize his seriousness when he posts on social media. In a video posted by KKR on Twitter on Tuesday about players ‘spreading hatred’ on social media, Karthik was seen expressing his disappointment about the same. “I sometimes feel that social media needs a kinder place. I think people don’t realize the seriousness of what they say, whether it’s memes, videos or just words used. It’s theirs. It’s just a matter of moments naturally. What do they think they’ve put in there,” said the wicketkeeper-batsman.
Kartik also said that these people do not realize what the other person has to do because of their actions.
Earlier on Monday, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) all-rounder Daniel Christian and his teammate Georgia Dunn drew criticism from a certain section of fans after the team’s defeat in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 Eliminator.
KKR came out in support of RCB players and tweeted, “Ask to spread hatred. Cricketers are often victimized online abuse. It is high time we take a strong stand against it. Wins and losses are part of any game.” We stand with you @RCBTweets@danchristian54 @Gmaxi_3. We’ve been there too.”
Say no to haters.
Cricketers often fall prey to online-abuse. The time has come for us to take a strong stand against this.

RCB batsman and Christian’s compatriot Glenn Maxwell was the first to troll on social media. On Tuesday morning, Maxwell hit back at social media trolls following the incident.
