If your name is Sonam Gupta, you have the legitimate right to curse the internet.
If you're curious as to why Sonam Gupta is taking the web trends over, here's what the story is:
After a jilted lover wrote "Sonam Gupta bewafa hai" on a tattered Rs 10 note back in August and posted it on the internet, all Sonam Guptas gained overnight fame. Social media users cracked all kinds of jokes at the expense of this particular Sonam Gupta, making life rather painful for her numerous namesakes.
Sonam Gupta's bewafai resurfaced again with Prime Minister Narendra Modi's demonetisation of Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 notes. With "Sonam Gupta bewafa hai" written on a Rs. 2000 note this time, the jilted lover has returned to warn men of Gupta's unfaithfulness, yet again.
Amidst the currency ban chaos, social media, as it always seems to, has found its funny bone. From looking at pictures of the long queues outside ATMs, we are now looking at memes that curse Sonam Gupta for her deceit.
Here's how social media stood with the heartbroken lover and collectively bashed Ms. Gupta:

Curiosity peaked to a level where netizens now wanted to find out who Sonam Gupta actually is:

Sonam Gupta has not just become a more popular search than Sonam Kapoor, but she also has a dedicated page to her, whoever she may be.
Joining social media users against Sonam Gupta's unfaithfulness is the Indian comedy group — AIB, which came up with its own series of memes against Gupta's treacherous virtue.
And there's nothing to indicate that this flogging won't continue long after the proverbial horse's carcass has decomposed.
