Social media is a scary place to be in. Any slip-up and you're under fire. The celebrities bear the brunt of this most of the times. Some make honest mistakes, most just don't know what they are talking about.
Shilpa Shetty Kundra is being trolled on Twitter for not one of her tweets, but for her two cents on the dynamic shift in school syllabus — the inclusion of comics and such. Talking about the kind of books that should be taught to kids at school, Kundra said George Orwell's Animal Farm could be part of the curriculum as it will help students be more compassionate about animals.
Twitterati are having good laugh over it and here's what some have written:
Nirwa Mehta: The Hunger Games is a great series on Karwa Chauth. #ShilpaShettyReviews
Harish Iyengaar: "The Hobbit is good. All children should develop good hobbits." #ShilpaShettyReviews
Shashank Singh: The Life of Pi should be read by all children as it will enhance their mathematical skills. #ShilpaShettyReviews
Hriday Ranjan: Sherlock Holmes is the story of a village where people don't lock their houses, so a tiger does it for them #ShilpaShettyReviews
Sand-d Sing: PS, I Love You would encourage more kids to buy Play Stations. #ShilpaShettyReviews
Akshay Iyer @mavri: "The 3 musketeers" is a great read about 3 malyalis from Muscat #ShilpaShettyReviews
Kundra isn't the first one to be in soup for making a slip-up. Listed below are five celebrities who have gotten trolled for their fashion and work choices, and spelling mistake.
Early 2015, a photo of a dress took the internet by storm. It started off a debate whether it was white and gold one or has blue and black stripes. Months later, Roshan shared a photo of the said dress and asked what color it was? The superstar was heavily trolled for picking up a subject that was dead long ago.
The Sultan actress was shocked on learning APJ Abdul Kalam had passed away. She posted on Twitter soon after: "Very sad to hear about the passing of ABJ Kalam Azad. Loss of an inspiring visionary and a wonderful soul. May his soul RIP." After being criticised for getting his name wrong, Sharma said it was an honest mistake. "I don't want to pay attention to cowards who hide behind computer screens...with fake names. If you want to say things come and say it on my face," she had told the media.
The young actor, also known for being one of the athletic stars in the Hindi film industry, was honoured with the Youth Icon Award and later was offered to be part of a photoshoot with the magazine. Shroff shared one of the shoot pictures, in which he is flaunting his flexibility. What followed next was a series of memes that totally crushed the spirit of the photograph Shroff had uploaded on social media.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
For the Cannes Film Festival 2016, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan picked an off-shoulder Rami Kadi dress that complemented her high and neat pony tail and lavender lips. Even though she pulled off the look quite well, the internet users decided to rain on her parade with their unending jokes and scathing memes.
However, she shut her detractors up by saying this: "I am an actor by my career choice. I enjoy fashion and I treat it like art and I have a life, a family. So, I am not focusing on all of this. So it (look) doesn't stress me out.. It doesn't make me nervous.. I am a professional."
She is known for making some different fashion choices, but at Cannes Film Festival 2015 she went a little too far. In a feathered Elie Saab gown, Kapoor was more than happy walking the red carpet, but netizens weren't pleased. While some called it the "big bird" dress, others joked she just looked like a big pile of hay.
