Ajith and Vijay fans clash on Twitter, trend contrasting hashtags

The hashtag #RIPactorVijay started trending on Twitter which caused a lot of confusion among fans

In yet another virtual war on Twitter, fans of Ajith early this morning nationally trended the hashtags #RIPVijay and #RIPActorVijay.

In response, fans of Vijay took a much cleaner route and trended the hashtag #LongLiveVijay. The latest count reveals that #LongLiveVijay has surpassed the #RIPVijay hastag by a healthy count of 100,000.

Earlier in the day, the trend caused confusion among Twitterati and it also created a sense of panic among fans of the Bigil star. The nationwide trend shook several fans who later got in touch with the actor's team to find out if Vijay was well. It came to light later that the trend was started by Ajith fans.
