Shobhaa De is a writer and columnist yet she is not quite famous for her views towards current affairs and looks like she made a huge mistake this time when she commented about Indian Olympic Team on her twitter account.
Well, she surely knows how to be a part of controversy as her Twitter is always full with people who keep blasting her. Now, we all know that India’s performance in Rio de Janeiro has not been very encouraging till now but die-hard Indian fans are still rooting for the athletes. Meanwhile, Shobhaa decided to take a dig on Indian Olympic Team and as soon as she expressed her way too liberal and bold views in an insulting way and Twitterati went ballistic.
This is what Shobhaa De chose to say:
Goal of Team India at the Olympics: Rio jao. Selfies lo. Khaali haat wapas aao. What a waste of money and opportunity.

And this is how Twitterati slammed her :

that's a tad unfair. You should be proud of your athletes perusing human excellence against the whole world.

Unsporting & crass for socialites to frivolously dis Indian athletes who have succeeded against all odds to get as far as Rio

.@DeShobhaa Ma'am, with undue respect, I feel u could've got us a gold medal, but sadly uttering bullshit all day isn't an Olympic sport yet

This very regressive attitude is why sports does not become mainstream in India. Losing is made to feel like a shame https://t.co/gTM6lKxjEn
