While a number of Indians were complaining that Star Sports was not telecasting Dipa Karmakars’s performance in Rio Olympics 2016, even Sr. Bachchan showed his disappointment on twitter. And other performers were having a tough time to yield desired results in Olympic platform.
Renowned writer and columnist Shobhaa De landed herself in a strange soup of social network through her verified Twitter account mentioning “Goal of Team India at the Olympics: Rio jao. Selfies lo. Khaali haat wapas aao. What a waste of money and opportunity,”
As expected Indian Twitterati reacted immediately. Things escalated very quickly and people were commenting all over social media on various platforms. And a few of the highlights are below:

. @DeShobhaa you are a stupid human and a terrible waste of oxygen. I’m not even trolling you. I’m genuinely asking you to stop thinking.

Later on Sahil Shah tweeted.
Shobha De wrote a column saying ‘A sari needs curves and Kate has none’ which is ironic cause columnists need brains and Shobha De has none.

Renown lawyer Deepika posted her views on that in her facebook profile
Shobha De is quite active in social media and is known for her bold statements, but this tweet on the participants of Rio Olympics from India was very demeaning and as expected she was not spared for such a mockery in social media.
