WhatsApp forwards and fake news seem to have taken the driver’s seat and things don’t seem to be changing anytime soon.
In a recent tweet, he said homeopathic medicine may be the cure to coronavirus. He also said he hopes that India will lead the world in finding a treatment for the ongoing pandemic. Here’s the tweet.
T 3491 – As a beneficiary of homoeopathy I’m encouraged to see the efforts of the AYUSH Ministry to counter Corona.— Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) April 3, 2020
I pray that india leads the World in finding preventive & curative solutions for such epidemics.🙏🙏 pic.twitter.com/DRH42UGjFY
While some users asked him to do his research well before tweeting, others, said that his account must be suspended for spreading lies.

Looks like he has been studying a lot on WhatsApp university in the past years which is visible in his tweets here. 😁
Sirji, I really wish homoeopathy could bring a cure right now, but seems like it isn’t helping. Seeing many homeo doctors selling their medicine on the name of corona killers. Not sure if that really helps.— Amit Bhawani (@amitbhawani) April 3, 2020
Thank you for informing that homeopathy is responsible for your state of mind. We’ll stay away.— fallendownawell (@fallendownawel1) April 3, 2020

Doctors saved @SrBachchan‘s life in 1982. For four decades, he’s had chronic medical issues and was treated by the best doctors. Why didn’t he depend on homeopathy quacks?— Quarantined Chirpy (@IndianPrism) April 3, 2020
Bachchan is a repeat offender spreading superstition & quackery. His a/c should be suspended @TwitterIndia
