New Delhi :
Writer Shobhaa De stirred fresh controversy by mocking Indian athletes at the ongoing Rio Olympics 2016. De took to Twitter to express her opinion on the Indian team at Rio. But as usual the ever active Twitteratis reacted equally to De’s Tweet.
After three days of action at the Rio Olympics, Indian athletes have still not won a medal which made De quite uncomfortable within and prompted her to do so.
This is how Twitteratis reacted to De’s insensitive remarks:
Unsporting & crass for socialites to frivolously dis Indian athletes who have succeeded against all odds to get as far as Rio— Milind Deora (@milinddeora) August 8, 2016
@DeShobhaa that's a tad unfair. You should be proud of your athletes perusing human excellence against the whole world.— Abhinav Bindra (@Abhinav_Bindra) August 9, 2016
Ms. De, kindly run on the hockey pitch for 60 mins & hold a rifle like Abhinav and Gagan. Bit tougher than u think https://t.co/XwZFKqZJjn— Viren Rasquinha (@virenrasquinha) August 8, 2016
