Soon the followers of the music director started trolling the hotel for absurd pricing of its services. Some even jokingly enquired about the breed of the hen that gave away the eggs. One of the followers commented, “It's similar to artist lipsinging on stage during live concert.. you pay for value, ambience and experience not for the product.. duh..”
