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. Anushka Sharma too, much like everybody else, took to Twitter to express her thoughts, but with one difference. She got the former president's name wrong. Not once, but twice.

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