While the entire nation is shaken by such a horrifying crime, one social media influencer is now apparently trying to milk the opportunity to make content. The social media influencer, idetified as Aarush Gupta, has been dubbed "insensitive" by social media users for making an Instagram reel about the Delhi murder case.

The video, posted by a Twitter user, showed Aarush Gupta - without any actual understanding of the matter - enacting what happened between the two lovers. He even used Om Shanti Om's Danstaan-E-Om Shanti Om song in the background of the video.

"Shraddha Walkar case is now influencer reel topic. Trigger warning: Violence, murder, abuse," Twitter user Nirwa Mehta wrote in the caption of the video.

Here's the video:

At the end, even though the content creator claimed that his post is supposed to spread awareness, internet users deservedly called out his "sick" content and lambasted Aarush Gupta for the reel.

“Not everything is content. Even if their motive was to spread awareness about the case, they could've done without enacting it, this is a legal issue, more of which a sensitive one,” wrote one user. “This is sick,” said another.

“Is he trying to justify the crime that b*****d committed in the name of love?” wrote a third. “Kindly take action against this sick minded person. This is not an awareness video but just from petty likes and followers,” commented fourth.

“This is insane. They are making a mockery of such kind of brutal case. Shame,” another user said while sharing Mr Gupta's video on the microblogging platform. “What kind of sick society do we live in?” another user wrote.
