The reactions to this verdict can be distinguished into two broad classifications: those who are for the "fair justice" and are glad to know that nobody is above the law and those who are disappointed with the judgment and think Salman is good man who deserves better.

It is no surprise that most of the Bollywood celebrities fall in the later category. You can call it personal loyalty or even industry loyalty, but celebrities who have tweeted out their opinion on Twitter have stood in support of Salman.

While the likes of Karan Johar, Dia Mirza and Alia Bhatt have admitted that their reactions are emotional and they extend their support to Salman's family, Abhijeet and Farah Ali Khan have tweeted to say that people shouldn't sleep on the roads.

Abhijeet has gone further to say that he was homeless for a year and still didn't resort to the streets.

Here are some tweets in Salman's support:

However, going by their tweets, Farah Ali Khan and Abhijeet have clearly  gone a tad bit overboard.
