A photoshopped picture showing an image of outgoing British Prime Minister Boris Johnson dressed as Roman leader Julius Caesar and Rishi Sunak stabbing him in the back as he is refereed as "killer" Brutus, has gone viral on the social media.

The picture has been found in “a poor taste and even verged as dangerous” by Business Minister Greg Hands, who is backing the British Indian ex-minister in the PM’s race.

The picture was re-posted by Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries on twitter.

It was however taken down or deleted later.

Apart from them, twitter users were on a war over the photo with some supporting Rishi and others denouncing Johnson.

Below are a few reactions:
