The cold war between Thalapathy Vijay and Ajith fans has become normal through the years, but now an obscene hashtag #RIPJosephVijay is currently trending on Twitter. Though the superstars or their associates are yet to comment on this, Costume designer Vasuki has reacted to this ugly spat of fans.

The rivalry between fans of both actors is not new. In 2014, when Ajith’s ‘Veeram’ clashed with Vijay’s ‘Jilla’ at the box office, fans from both camps launched a full-scale verbal attack on each other.

Once again in 2019 when media reports suggested that Vijay’s movie Bigil had surpassed the box office collection of Ajith’s Viswasam, the fans began posting unpleasant messages against each other which topped the trend on Twitter at the time.

Currently, few anti-fans of Vijay are trending #RIPJosephVijay on Twitter claiming that the Master actor has died at the age of 48 and also shared some morphed photos of him on social media sites.

Costume designer Vasuki has reacted to this and posted a tweet that reads,"I kindly request @actorvijay avl / #ajithkumar avl 2step in give a statement ending this social war Vomiting in the name of love. Misusing ur names images n wasting time n creating a culture. This has to STOP or we are allowing a next generation from turning into antisocials".

Film writer and critic S Shivakumar called the social media war between the two fandoms “absolutely distasteful”. “Both Vjay and Ajith are so cordial with each other. They are not enemies, but competitors. The element of competition has been there, like between MGR and Sivaji Ganesan or Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan. But the fans are the ones who have taken this to a low level. Earlier they used to fight outside the theatres where the movies were being screened, now they have got a platform to vent their frustration which is being misused. The sad part is not the pathetic Twitter battles but both the stars not admonishing their fans,” Shivakumar told in a recent interview with a leading news channel.
