KARACHI – Feroze Khan on Wednesday served defamation to actor Fahad Mirza for calling him a “moron of the highest order”.
Condemning the false and baseless allegations, Feroze shared the legal document on his official Twitter handle clapping back at his critics over what he described as “lies”.
“That I am a moron of the highest order is a lie. I condemn the false and baseless allegation,” he wrote in his tweet.
“I can assure you, there are much better morons. I have personally seen morons of a higher order,” he added, with the copy of the defamation notice to his 442,000 followers.
Feroze Khan’s growing following among the demographic, the pecking order of which he was defending in his tweet, meant that many of his supporters expressed solidarity with him.
“When persons who are not morons deny being morons we stand with them. We should similarly stand with someone who has been wrongly called as the superlative form of something that he perhaps is only a higher-tier version of,” wrote a Twitter user while sharing Feroze Khan’s tweet.
“We demand equality all the time, we shout against discrimination. Who will speak up for the lesser morons?” tweeted another follower.
“Aapka bhai haazir hai,” was Feroze Khan’s replied-retweet to the latter comment.
