In this video, Karthik said, “Sometimes I feel that social media needs to be made a right place. People don’t realize the seriousness of what they say, be it memes, videos or just the use of words. It is a matter of moment for them. They instinctively say what they feel there. But they do not think that for whom they are speaking such a thing, what will happen to them.
Say NO to hate-mongering.
Cricketers are subjected to online-abuse way too often. It’s high time we take a strong stand against it.
