Dr. Abdul Kalam was a great man and the news of his passing away this week saddened everybody. People expressed their moments of grief through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Recently actor Neha Dhupia too faced outrageous backlash on Twitter for supposedly criticizing PM Modi's initiatives. People are viciously attacking actors for these public goof-ups, whether it's for spelling mistakes or miscommunicated thoughts.

Lol-worthy trolling is alright, but when the fun turns into an assault, Twitter can be a real scary place.
