His death started a debate about 'insiders vs outsiders' and how nepotism doesn't provide a fair playing ground to all the artists. A couple of weeks ago, Sonam Kapoor had shared the screenshots of hate messages she has been receiving lately. The actress revealed that people are wishing upon her death as well as her family. Now, she has slammed Instagram for not pulling down hate comments against her sister Rhea Kapoor even after they reported it.

Sonam Kapoor took to Instagram stories to share Instagram's response to their complaint about the 'death' messages Rhea received. The Khoobsurat actress wrote, "Instagram doesn’t think death threats is a violation or their India team can’t read Hindi." The response of the image sharing app states that the "comment likely doesn't go against our Community Guidelines...if you don't want to see on Instagram, you can unfollow, mute or block them to hide their posts and comments from your feed."

Rhea also wrote, "Of course I will block this individual but are you doing your part to keep the ‘community’ safe?"  She added, "Just charming. Of course I am happy to block unnecessarily hateful people without giving it a thought but what pisses me off is that a death threat isn’t against your ‘community guideline’ Instagram?"

But right now is the time to speak about the lives lost at the borders and the lives affected by the lockdown. I’m turning off my comments."
