Siddharth clarified that his tweet was not aimed at anyone specifically and he always tweets about his life.

The couple got married in 2017 in Goa and were together for the last four years. The couple was popularly known ‘ChaySam’. After facing several trolls on social media, the couple requested media and their fans to give them some privacy. Within a few hours of this announcement Samantha Ruth Prabhu’s ex Siddharth tweeted a cryptic post ‘cheater never prosper’ -“One of the first lessons I learnt from a teacher in school… ‘Cheaters never prosper. What’s yours?”
One of the first lessons I learnt from a teacher in school…
"Cheaters never prosper."

Samantha and Siddharth, who have been co-stars in the past were also reported to be in a relationship for a long time in 2013. However, the two of them never confirmed the reporting. Since Siddharth’s tweet was made within a few hours of Samantha’s divorce announcement with Chaitanya, people thought it was a dig at them.
In an online video of NTV Telugu, when Siddharth was questioned about his tweet ‘cheaters never prosper’, he clarified that the tweet was not a dig at his ex Samantha. Siddharth said that the tweet was about his personal life and had no relevance with anything else. In the video when Siddharth was asked about the tweet ‘coming out of nowhere. He replied instantly in Telugu, “Why will it come out of nowhere, sir? I have been tweeting for 12 years now. One day, if I say that stray dogs are barking outside my house and if people come and ask me, ‘Are you calling me a dog?’, what can I do? I am talking about actual dogs.”
When Siddharth was asked that if the tweet had any relevance with his ex Samantha’s divorce, he replied, “Please, I only talk about my life. There is no relation to anything else. If you are associating it with something that it has no relation to, that’s your problem.” He said that the tweet was about his conversation with his Mahasamudram director as one of the movie’s themes is based on cheating. Siddharth made a justification by asking what is he supposed to do if every cheater would come and ask if the tweet was about them. Further, he also said that he has been making tweets for years and has never been asked about any of his posts except the ‘cheater’ one.

While a person tagged his tweet “Such a low”.
One of the users criticized Siddharth heavily saying, “Have you heard of the phrase ‘below the belt’ @Actor_Siddharth? I really wish that your teacher had taught you that. It’s okay though. How long could you have masqueraded as a supposedly progressive person and a #feminist! Forget Samantha, I don’t think anyone should be with you.”
