Amitabh Bachchan slammed for incorrect tweet about coronavirus

Veteran Amitabh Bachchan came under fire by Twitterati after he posted misinformation about the coronavirus crisis.

The tweet, which has now been removed, shared a theory claiming that clapping together in Janta Curfew on 22nd March at 17:00, would make vibration in the atmosphere destroying the deadly illness.

While the tweet had been dubbed as “incorrect” by Press Information Bureau’s Fact Check official Twitter handle, Bachchan had kept it online. However, it was subsequently deleted due to the uproar.

Bachchan had shared, “T 3479 – AN OPINION GIVEN : 5 pm ; 22nd Mar, “amavasya”, darkest day of month; virus, bacteria evil force at max potential & power! Clapping shankh vibrations reduce/ destroy virus potency Moon passing to new ‘nakshatra’ Revati. Cumulative vibration betters blood circulation (sic).”
