Shashi Tharoor Calls Celeb Twitter Storm Embarrassing
The ongoing farmers’ protest has gained global attention as many personalities have started to stand in solidarity with them. Recently international popstar Rihanna has tweeted her support for the farmers. Along with her well know environment activist Greta Thunberg also tweeted in support of the farmers.
But this did not go well with many especially some Bollywood celebrities as well as cricketers. Thus they all started a Twitter storm after Rihanna and Greta’s tweets.
Veteran Congress leader Shashi Tharoor has openly slammed these celebrities for their Twitter storm. He called the act a very embarrassing one. In the statement, he added that he is ashamed by the Twitter storm started by these people just to oppose an international icon who wants to extend her support to the farmers.
Bad Move By Government, Says Tharoor
The leader has also blamed the ruling government to have used these celebrities and cricketers as a weapon to give a befitting reply to Rihanna and Greta’s tweet.
He added that this was a very shameful and a bad move by the government to use Indian celebrities to stop an icon like Rihanna from raising her voice against injustice.
He said that this has ruined the reputation of India at a global level and it cannot be undone by any means.
