This reply of Mckenzie praising Kamal Haasan went extremely viral among the fans of Tamil cinema. In no time, McKenzie’s number of followers increased as the fans of Kamal Haasan started following her account. As we all know, we can’t expect 100% positivity in Internet. On seeing these tweets of Mckenzie, one of a twitter user whose bio says that he is a Rajinikanth fan, tried to defame Kamal Haasan through his replies to Mckenzie.
He said that Kamal Haasan is a failed actor in India and accused him of using American brand name for cheap publicity. He also said that Kamal’s movies would turnout as a disaster always through his comment. Shocked Mckenzie immediately replied by saying that she didn’t think that he is talking about Kamal Haasan. “Huh? I don’t think we are speaking of the same man. He’s a dear friend to my family and spoke with my dad just yesterday” he reply read.

However, the twitter user went on to bash Kamal Haasan. He said that Kamal Haasan’s political party was rejected by Indian people. “he is just a “waste LAND ” he said.
Here’s the screenshot of his profile and bio :
McKenzie gave him back by saying that she is going to ignore his tweets. “Please stop your slander as you’re speaking of a family friend!” Westmore requested him.
I’m going to just ignore your tweets before I repost to everyone. Please stop your slander as you’re speaking of a family friend!— McKenzie Westmore (@mckenziewestmor) May 21, 2020
