Akhtar has been facing major backlash from the fan base after he posted on his Instagram a video where he has been seen taking a stroll on a bike in Islamabad. His caption reads “Cycling in my beautiful city. Lovely weather. Empty roads.Best work out. #islamabad #pakistan.”
Akhtar faced many negative comments that his little venture might cause damage not only to him but many around him. The athlete did not even wear a mask which further angered the fans. Many also worried that such an act can be risky for the sports star.
People stressed on the fact that he was a celebrity and he had a responsibility as many are likely to follow blindly his actions.
Comments started flooding his video, some of which were:
“Bhai plz tc Stay home stay safe.. Plzz fallow the lockdown rules”
“Setting wrong example. Go home”
“So… “do as i say, not as i do” ? What happened to staying at home?”
“Corona khtk ho gya ? Ohh ok good”
Akhtar was accused of hypocrisy as previously he had posted a video urging people to stay home and now people are angry with him as he himself cannot do so what he says.
