The News Minute | December 9, 2014| 8.26 am IST At one point the Facebook page ‘Lingusamy Memes’ was at its element -  a platform used for trolling director Lingusamy after the release of his last film Anjaan which didn’t do quite so well at the box office. However, the trolling seems to have crossed a line and administrators of the Facebook page have said that they will either bring down the page or rename it, reported The Hindu. The reason for the decision was because Lingusamy had recently revealed in an interview that even his children were aware of the trolling on social media. Trolling reached a high point after a number of pages sporting memes trolling the director were created.  “We weren’t aware of what and how it would affect him. These days, every single movie and its dialogues are being trolled in social media. That’s exactly what we did without any intention of hurting anyone. But, when we learnt that it reached even his children, we felt it was wrong,” said the administrators according to the report. The social media troll began after Lingusamy made statements in an interview declaring that he had ‘tuned’ himself to the script (naan appidiye tune aayirukein)
