The thing about being a celebrity is that people begin to look at you as public objects. In fact, you gradually cease to be human being, with an identity of your own, and you simply end up being nothing more than a public entity.
With the availability of social media and easy access to the internet, several celebs have had their pictures and names misused. For instance, you’ll often come across ads on social media and in newspapers which use unauthorized images of the celebs for their personal gains.
Recently, Virender Sehwag became the victim of such a scam. The Rashtriya Loktantric Party came up with a campaign advertisement in a local newspaper and used Sehwag’s name without his permission.
While this often goes unnoticed, Sehwag decided to speak up about it. He tweeted,
I am in Dubai & have had no communication with any of these guys.
When these Liars can shamelessly lie in the name of their campaign & try to fool people,wonder how much they will fool people if by any chance they come to power.
Anything is better than deceit & lies pic.twitter.com/uAgHozDwxH

Several people came out in his support and even found it hilarious. Check out some of the responses:

Thanks to Sehwag, people like Hanuman Beniwal come under scrutiny. We hope he takes action against them.
