I don’t think @RRRMovie is a gay love story as you say but even if it was, is “gay love story” a bad thing? How can you justify using this ? Extremely disappointed that someone of your accomplishments can stoop so low! https://t.co/c5FmDjVYu9

In his own words, a film he worked for #Nanban can be termed as a threesome gay love story (if it were released in 2022 and becomes a ₹1100 cr film and then appreciated by Hollywood celebs and critics alike)!
Not my idea. Trying to think from his point of view! #RRR https://t.co/l2sJ1mcu8X

There are so many reasons to hate RRR and being homophobic isn’t one of them. Sad to see this coming from a celebrated artist. https://t.co/FE4qZwVmpg

You’ve brought hate towards non-Telugu film industries
You’ve brought hate towards non-Hindu religions
You’ve brought hate towards the LGBTQ+ community
You’ve brought hate towards the movie that got you an Oscar award
Delete and apologize if you have any common sense you idiot https://t.co/QTVlUuWsG0

This is actually an insult to the #LGBTQ community, did any of the character in the movie confirm that they are gay ?! you just can’t use #LGBTQ to express your disgust. https://t.co/LrXsRk5kCx
