On Tuesday evening,  Deepika Padukone joined the ongoing JNU protests to stand in solidarity with students who were attacked by masked goons on Sunday. 


Even though Deepika chose to not comment on the ongoing situation, #Boycottchhapaak started trending on Twitter soon after her appearance. 

Using the trending hashtag, Twitter broke into a series of hate-filled tweets against the actor and her upcoming film Chhapaak that revolves around the struggles of an acid attack survivor.
