And before he could breathe, Twitter got tangled between writer Tom Holland and Hollywood ‘Spider-Man’ actor Tom Holland. The hatred was immediately directed at another Tom Holland who became “anti-national”.
Holland Hu, who was born in the UK, is an English cricketer and author who has published bestselling books on classical and medieval history. His satirical tweet was distorted by Desi netizens, who quickly became critical of the upcoming Spider-Man film in December this year. Holland (Spider-Man) was accused of spreading “international propaganda” against India and people wanted to cancel the actor and his successful comic book series.
Some have seen clearly. Wary of the difference between the two personalities, Twitterratti found herself in a split. In fact, Holland himself was not too surprised by the reaction of the Indian Twitterati. On that note, he left some sarcastic tweets. “Like I said – the story of my life,” he wrote.
Others, including the famous comedian Vir Das, also commented on the same.
