Sonu's tweet and Bollywood: The silence of the clan

Social media doesn't just cause online controversies, it makes offline controversies so much more fun. A day after users uninstalled Snapdeal instead of Snapchat after 'derogatory' comments made by the latter's CEO, Sonu Sood was a bit of a talking point for comments about "forced religiousness" and the azaan made by Sonu Nigam. 'Serious debate' should have been sparked, but a thousand jokes were launched instead - faux fatwas were issued against Sood instead of Nigam, and more, till Sonu finally tweeted, "I am still wondering WHO said WHAT n to WHOM n WHO'S asking me to find out WHAT happened WHERE." Those are the five (or six?) Ws of social media, and one H - haha.

They are fairly active online, but only when it comes to 'safe' stuff. B'wood celebs prefer to stick to collective sharing of philosophy, harmless promotional info and sweet selfies. The industry's silence after Sonu Nigam tweeted about "forced religiousness" and being woken up by the azaan is typical. It woke hardly any of his colleagues - just like in the case of Javed Akhtar, Abhay Deol, Irrfan and Aamir Khan. Silence is golden?
