An online petition has been filed by Twitter users asking Amitabh Bachchan and industrialist Anand Mahindra to delete Whatsapp from their mobile phones.


The description of the petition reads “A megastar and a renowned industrialist are falling prey to fake news & bizarre content being fed to them via Whatsapp. We need to restore the dignity of two gentlemen. Through this petition we are requesting Mark Zuckerberg to disable Whatsapp on their numbers,”

Amitabh earlier tweeted about how clapping and clanging utensils can help in combating coronavirus pandemic. After being trolled, he deleted the tweet. Just a few days later, he tweeted that coronavirus pandemic can stay on human excreta for weeks.

On the other hand, Anand Mahindra had shared a picture of a mother and a toddler wearing masks made out of leaves, and said he hoped it would become an iconic image during the coronavirus pandemic.

He tweeted, “It’s not just about #MaskIndia but also a greener world. A reminder that nature already provides us with all that we need”


But after facing heavy backlash for his tweet, he deleted the tweet.
