People are picking sides, some are lauding Ranaut for standing up to nepotistic Bollywood stars, some are deeming "eugenics" as the reason for the practice and some are just going about their day, as usual.

Between all of this, there is Sonam Kapoor, who took to Twitter to define nepotism. And needless to say, people are not pleased.

Here's her tweet for your reference:

 

Twitterati was quick to notice the capitalised letters and lost its s**t. Now, we do not really know which side Kapoor stands on in the debate. Back when Ranaut had made the nepotism remark on Koffee With Karan, Kapoor was asked for her thoughts on the subject. She brushed it aside by saying she hadn't followed the episode, therefore was unaware of Ranaut's comments.

Therefore, she has never explicitly stated what she thinks of the practice. Twitter, however, was quick to point out to Kapoor that needn't Google meanings and post them on Twitter as she, herself is a product of the same practice, too. Here are some of tweets from the platform:  

 

Needless to say, Twitter is having a fine Saturday morning.
