Being the legend that he is, SRK decided to make a fan's day by personally replying to her birthday tweet.

He even linked her to the trailer of his new film, Dilwale, as a return gift. What a great guy.

He even linked her to the trailer of his new film, Dilwale, as a return gift. What a great guy.

She was understandably elated and over the moon.

Omg omg omg !! U replied me with Diwale Trailer !! Thank u so much Sir 🙏☺ https://t.co/8SGM0ahzS9

But wait, what was this? Another person who's over the moon because SRK personally replied to him...

And another.

Turns out, King Khan is a bit of a two-timer when it comes to Twitter.

Once people realised that SRK's account had been taken over by a bot that was replying to EVERY SINGLE PERSON who used his birthday hashtag, there was understandable anger.

What the hell @iamsrk ?? my childhood hero disappointed me with that kinda stupidity.

Some users made do with what they got.

I have passed away despite bae sending this same tweet to 4 billion other people 💕💕💕💕💕💕💕 https://t.co/wFB2DGXxhw

But mostly, there were just a lot of broken hearts.

when your crush sends you a sweet text and then you find out he sent it to EVERYONE IN HIS CONTACTS

Why you gotta be so cruel?
