We often receive fake messages via social media. Sometimes unknowingly we share it only to find later that it was untrue. Similar thing happened with popular playback singer and BJP leader Babul Supriyo who got trolled and the credit goes to WhatsApp. Babul fell prey to an unverified WhatsApp forward and excitingly took to Twitter to share it.

By the end of year, messages regarding upcoming year's calendar gets circulated insanely on Whatsapp. This year too, a message is doing the rounds on social media. Thinking the information to be factual, Babul Supriyo shared it on his Twitter account. The message read, ''*This is absolutely CRAZY* — 01-01-2018 *SUNDAY*, 02-02-2018 *SUNDAY*, 03-03-2018 *SUNDAY*, 04-04-2018 *SUNDAY*, 05-05-2018 *SUNDAY*, 06-06-2018 *SUNDAY*, 07-07-2018 *SUNDAY*, 08-08-2018 *SUNDAY*, 09-09-2018 *SUNDAY*, 10-10-2018 *SUNDAY*, 11-11-2018 *SUNDAY*, 12-12-2018 *SUNDAY*''

Soon after this got posted, Twitterati started correcting the singer. While some trolled the singer rigorously, others suggested him to check his facts before posting. Some even posted the original calendar in the comment section. The singer cum leader realised his mistake but refused to delete his tweet. ''It’s crazy that someone create such a fake thing !!! Infuriated But I won’t delete it as some of you suggest. we can all make mistakes or be April Fooled in December .. I’d rather accept that I am fooled with this one,'' he wrote in another tweet.

He also gave befitting response to some trollers. ''No no .. I won’t  who said I will HAVE to be correct all the time .. ?
