World cup 2019’s most buzzed India Vs Pakistan match comes up with a social media storm including memes and humorous videos. Now there’s another controversy which has caused trouble over Ranveer Singh’s post on his Instagram handle.
After the India’s victory over Pakistan, Ranveer went on a picture spree and flooded his Instagram account with pictures which he took with Indian cricketers including Hardik Pandya. He captioned it as, “Sleep. Dominate. Repeat. The name is Hardik. Hardik Pandya. �✌�✊� @hardikpandya93 ma boi #unstoppable.”
However, he has been accused of plagiarising the caption, which belongs to WWE star Brock Lesnar. Brock’s manager Paul Heyman threatened Ranveer on social media that he should give credits and use a hashtag while using his catchphrase. He retweeted the photo and captioned,” @RanveerOfficial ARE YOU F'N KIDDING ME??????????? 1. It's Eat Sleep CONQUER Repeat 2. Copyright #YourHumbleAdvocate and @BrockLesnar 3. I am litigious 4. EAT SLEEP DEPOSITION REPEAT”
Taking inspiration from Ranveer Singh the official account of ICC also posted a picture MS Dhoni using his catchphrase, captioned as, "Eat. Sleep. Finish games. Repeat. Life as @msdhoni"
Paul also retweeted on ICCs tweet and wrote,” My most (in)sincere compliments to @cricketworldcup for promoting the amazing @msdhoni by paraphrasing my mantra for @WWE #UniversalChampion @BrockLesnar #EatSleepConquerRepeat. Our royalties may be paid in cash, check, stock or cryptocurrency:”
