The #Phateechar hashtag is trending and people have made it their own

Pakistan's homegrown cricket tournament PSL 2017 ended with a bang on Sunday and everyone is happy. Well... almost everyone.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan believes that the PSL final happening in Lahore wasn't as big a deal as people are making it sound.

Why? Because the foreign players who participated... were basically a bunch of nobodies, in his opinion.

Commenting on how the major names in cricket didn't show up, Imran Khan ends up bashing the players who did come, saying he's never heard of them and calling them phateechar (shabby or worn out).

It was unbecoming of the former cricketer to say that and Twitter is bent on telling him so.

He hurt his own fans.

Talk about broken hearts!

Many jumped to the defence of the foreign players.

And then Twitter decided to take over the #Phateechar hashtag and make it their own.

Lahore has bigger problems than PSL.

We feel ya, buddy.

Forever Alone?

An accurate use of the word.

In the end, we have to know...
