Bollywood celebrities Hrithik Roshan and Celina Jaitly's tweets on Istanbul airport attack didn't go down too well with Twitter users who have lashed out at the actors for being 'insensitive'.
Hrithik Roshan and Celina Jaitly
The bombing attacks in Istanbul's Ataturk Airport have left over 40 dead and over 230 injured. The attack took place on Tuesday night when three attackers arrived in a taxi and began firing at the terminal entrance.
Several Bollywood celebrities took to Twitter to condemn the attack and express angst.
Hrithik Roshan, who was with his kids Hrehaan and Hridhaan, had a narrow escape from the terror attack. He took to Twitter to share the news:

Celina Jaitly, too, tweeted about the fact that she was at the Istanbul airport a month ago and shared a photo of the sunset from the airport.
Twitter, however, did not take their tweets kindly and expressed displeasure over their 'insensitive' comments.
Here are some reactions:

What's your take on the issue? Do you think their comments were taken out of context? Or do you think they were 'insensitive'?
