Rishi Kapoor likes to fight fire with fire. His followers got a glimpse of his fighting spirit on Twitter, where he doesn't mince words when lashing out at his trolls. The Kapoor & Sons (2016) actor allegedly abused a woman in a direct Twitter message.

It all began when the actor posted this quiz asking his followers what was common between Karan Johar and him.

The veteran actor lost his cool when a troll said that both men got away with their stupidity because they are celebrities.

Taken aback, Kapoor abused the Twitter user in a tweet.

Kapoor’s harsh words triggered a backlash from his followers with one woman reminding the actor that he needn’t use foul language.

The user, who goes by the name of Samina Rashid from Florida tweeted to Kapoor, who sent her a direct message instead, abusing her. The user took a screenshot of the direct message and posted it on social media before deleting it.

One more user reminded Kapoor to keep his age in mind before he used such language.

The actor stopped abusing but instead started blocking the unwanted followers. Kapoor allegedly asked the woman to stop being preachy.

The actor blocked the users as the media started writing articles about him abusing a woman. He created a caricature of himself, reminding trolls of what awaits them.
