Haters will hate. And Twitter has a fair share of haters who need any excuse to unleash rants against women. They channeled their negative energy against actor Anushka Sharma after her boyfriend, Virat Kohli, scored one run in the World Cup semifinal between India and Australia today.

Sharma, who was sitting in audience in Sydney, looked shocked and distressed after Kohli was caught out by Brad Haddin off Mitchell Johnson's bowling.

Here are some of the awful things that were said on Twitter.

Sharma's nasty heckling on Twitter today is a repeat of March 19, when Kohli failed to score at the India-Bangladesh quarter final match at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Sharma, who is dating Kohli, was blamed for "distracting" him during the all-important knockout match.

Sharma, a successful Bollywood actress, usually attends the big matches to show support to Kohli. She was present today at the stadium looking tense when Kohli returned to the dressing room. Cricket analyst Rajesh Khilare shared a picture on Twitter of her standing up in suspense during a crucial moment in the match.

But for every tweet blaming Sharma, there were those who called out others for blaming her for Kohli's lack of performance.
