After India’s historical test series victory against Australia in Brisbane, Indian fans were on Cloud 9. Indian Cricket Team defeated Australia at their fortress Gabba and won the Test series against all odds. Australian captain ‘Tim Paine’
The Captain of the Australian cricket team ‘Tim Paine’ was very vocal behind the stumps. Tim Paine Challenged Indian Spinner Ravichandran Ashwin when he was batting in the third test saying “Can’t wait to get you at the Gabba Ash” & also he called Ashwin a “D*ckhead”. When India won at the Gabba on Tuesday, there was no power on earth that was going to Stop the Indian fans to troll the Australian Captain on Social Media.
The Australian captain ‘Tim Paine’ does have an Instagram account (@timpaine7) but it’s private and not verified. So when you search Tim Paine on Instagram the real account won’t appear on top. Instead, account of a Director of Production from UK ‘Tim Payne'(@timpayne_) & a New Zealand Football player @timpayne__ will appear on top. As these two accounts have a blue Instagram verification tick, Indians assumed them as the Aussie Captain Tim Paine.
The New Zealand Footballer Tim Payne plays in the A-League for Wellington Phoenix and his Instagram account was filled with tons of abuses from Indian Fans. The 27-Year-old football player turned off the commenting on his post as Indians were spamming tons of abuses in his comments. He shared a few screenshots of the messages he received from Indians on his stories.
The other Tim Payne from London who works as a Director of Production also received thousands for Messages from Indians. His posts got more than 10,000 comments. He too shared screenshots of the messages he received from Indians on his insta stories and also Posted this funny picture.
This is not the first time something like this is happening. Back in 2017, CEO of Snapchat (A multimedia messaging app) allegedly called India Poor and Indians on the internet went crazy.
In this fuzz Instead of Snapchat, some Indians went on play Store and gave 1star rating to ‘Snapdeal’ an online shopping App. Similar names made the company face backlash for no reason. Well, history has repeated in 2021. Guess the Internet Literacy among Indians will take some more time to develop.
