Known for his wit and humour, filmmaker Karan Johar could not keep his cool when someone tried mocking his sexuality following

legalisation of same-sex marriages

in the US.

A user on micro-blogging site Twitter took a jibe at the filmmaker's sexuality with his post that read, "#Rumors : @KaranJohar to get married soon in USA." To which Karan, replied, "It's so sad and disgusting when a major breakthrough movement is made into a mockery by some on Twitter!! Shame."

The tweet came after the US Supreme Court passed a judgment on Friday ruling that same-sex marriage is a legal right across the country. Meanwhile, homosexuality remains illegal in India after the Supreme Court in 2013 upheld Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code.
