'In a world of Shobhaa De, be PV Sindhu'; Shobaa De receives no reprieve from Twitter

After PV Sindhu created a lifetime of memories for herself and India by earning a silver medal at Rio Olympics, it was Shobhaa De who learnt a lesson that would probably haunt her for the rest of her life and maybe, deter her from tweeting senseless nothings.

Like the rest of India, Shobhaa De was watching PV Sindhu create history in Rio and tweeted about the player. But Twitterati did not let Shobha De redeem herself for the rude things she had tweeted about Indian athletes in Rio a few days back.

Sindhu's multitude of fans, including Amitabh Bachchan criticised Shobhaa De on Twitter.

Immediately after the women's singles badminton finals, Bachchan tweeted:

After Sindhu won the silver medal Shobhaa De tweeted, "P.V. Sindhu: 24 carat gold!!!! We love you" and a few other tweets but for sure she didn't see this was coming. The country's offended sports lovers proved that they were not willing to let Shobhaa De get away with her armchair commentary.

Shobaa De received much anger from Twitterati because of what she had tweeted earlier where she taunted the Indian team for taking only selfies at Rio and not bringing medals. She tweeted, "Goal of Team India at the Olympics: Rio jao. Selfies lo. Khaal haat wapas aao. What a waste of money and opportunity."
