Here’s Why Spiderman Star Tom Holland Is Being Threatened With Boycott In India
For no fault of his, Spiderman star, 24-year old Tom Holland is facing an unforeseen backlash in India for making a comment on India’s prime minister Narendra  Modi, when in fact Holland didn’t make the statement at all. Yup, they’ve got the wrong Tom Holland.

The offensive sarcastic tweet by a British historian Tom Holland read, “I'm a huge admirer of the modesty Modi showed in naming the world's largest cricket stadium after himself.” He further made another tweet in which he wrote, “Not always a good sign for countries when leaders start pulling that trick...” In no time  at  all #boycottspiderman  started trending when in fact this Tom Holland has nothing  to do with  Spiderman. The tweet was made by a British historian who among his research work boasts of a book tracing the origins of Islam.

 However it seems  the damage to  Spiderman Tom Holland’s  reputation as  an India-baiter has been. Selling the  next Spiderman film in  the Spiderman franchise in India may be  tougher than it seems.

The British historian Tom Holland was referring to world’s largest stadium in Ahmedabad, the Motera, being renamed to Narendra Modi stadium. On Wednesday, the stadium which was earlier called Sardar Patel Stadium, was inaugurated by President Ram Nath Kovind after a revamp, and it was renamed after the Prime Minister.
