Akshay Kumar apologized to fans and well-wishers on social media this morning after being criticized and trolled for starring in an advertisement for Vimal Elaichi, a chewing tobacco product. His fans pointed out that the actor was promoting consumption of tobacco in the advertisement.

The responses range from amusement to outrage. The majority of Twitter users believed Akshay Kumar, who is known for his fitness, was supporting a product owned by a gutka (chewing tobacco) making business.
