Amid a time of grief and anguish that has gripped Tamil nadu following the demise of its popular Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, a tweet of condolence by a veteran actor has generated a backlash of sorts.

Tamil veteran actor Kamal Haasan took to Twitter to condole the death of ‘Amma’ and it had a tongue in cheek message for Amma loyalists and supporters.  

                    
       
Kamal Haasan’s tweet in Tamil roughly translates to: "Deepest sympathies for all those who depended on her."
The twitterati were sufficiently speedy to respond to this and took to the online stage to express their "outrage ".

A portion of the tweets suggested that it was Haasan's own feud against Jayalalithaa after Ulaganayagan's Vishwaroopam was banned in Tamil Nadu, in 2013.

 Jayalalithaa was the head of All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK), a Dravidian political party which had a deep-rooted ideology in atheism.

The six-time CM of Tamil Nadu and one of India's most charismatic political leaders, died after a bitter 74-day battle for life. She was 68.

Jayalalithaa suffered a massive cardiac arrest on Sunday evening and died late Monday. She was laid to rest withfull state honours on Tuesday evening at Marina beach, near the memorial of MG Ramachandran, her mentor and founder of AIADMK.
