On the morning of 10th December, 2015 Indian film actor Salman Khan was acquitted by the Bombay High Court of all charges in the now infamous 2002 hit-and-run case. The court reached the verdict and stated that ‘prosecution has failed to prove the charges against Khan on all counts’, with respect to him driving the car that night, which ran over three people and killed one.
While many friends of Salman took to Twitter to congratulate him, many also reacted with disdain. Twitter took the matter in its hands and trolled Salman and the court’s judgement.

To err is human, to go unpunished is ‘Being Human ‘? #SalmanVerdict
