Actor Harsh Vardhan Kapoor Faces Backlash for Criticizing Imitation Sneakers in Social Media Post

Actor Harsh Vardhan Kapoor has responded to criticism after he asked men not to wear imitation sneakers. On Monday night, he declared on X (previously known as Twitter) that whenever he says something, “people on social media will go crazy.”

In response to a tweet with the following text, “Friends can you like… stop being poor and buy some money??! (sic).” The actor wrote, “When I put this out I already knew people who don’t know people would come after me etc. But the truth is I’ve been doing this for a long time and reps (replicas) of hyped shoes are more expensive than say a pair of converse old skool vans or used air forces etc.”

He also said, “I know every time I say something there will be people on social media who don’t know anything about footwear etc. going crazy but a lot of my followers are (running shoe emoji) enthusiasts or are looking to collect and that’s the audience I’m speaking to. You can now continue going bonkers on here for a temporary release of joy (national flag emoji).”

Earlier, Harsh Varrdhan wrote on his Instagram Stories, “Don’t know who needs to hear this, but please stop wearing fake sneakers… if you have a low/moderate budget there’s plenty of great options out there. Converse vans basic air force etc… if someone gets you a gift and they happen to be inauthentic you can pass them onto someone else that doesn’t know what they are and would be happy to wear… but if you are buying you’re own please do your own diligence… buy from trusted sellers…”
