Actress Sanjjanaa Galrani has been at the receiving end over her few tweets related to flood-hit Chennai. Angry twitterati have called her as an "insensitive human" for trying to get publicity during the troubled times.
Like many celebrities, Sanjjanaa had tried to do her bit on Twitter by tweeting useful posts related to Chennai floods. All was well until she tweeted, "An optimist sees an opportunity in every disaster & makes it a better situation,a pessimist is wiseversa,staypositive,"
Immediately after this tweet, she wrote, "I post a pic with sensitiveheart & a msg #prayforchennai coz I'm proud to present my self in everyway for everything," The two back-to-back posts were enough to irk the people, who attacked her for trying to gain publicity out of such situation.
Many sharply reacted for the way she gave her sympathies as it was quite offending for them to see her posting a photo in which the actress is posing with flowers. Understanding that her tweets have angered the people, she posted, "If u don't have a dignified mind to understand my purefeelings & support ur most welcome to unfollow me,God bless u,"
Sanjjanaa Galrani ended, "But on a more important note #PrayforChennai, feel so bitten watching the news ppl r homeless n hopeless, God plz help."
But people were not convinced and verbally attacked her. Below, read some of the select few reactions to her posts:
Hasn't she heard that it's better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt?
