India’s so called socialite Shobhaa De made a very uncalled for statement on Twitter about the Indian athletes competing at Rio Olympics and she is facing the heat for it. Why not, after all it’s not what India needs at this very moment when we’re rejoicing the presence of our great athletes who are breaking in, even after all the lack of facilities provided to them.
Goal of Team India at the Olympics: Rio jao. Selfies lo. Khaali haat wapas aao. What a waste of money and opportunity.

The tweet as expected has angered our athletes and they gave it back to her and how. Check out:

@DeShobhaa that's a tad unfair. You should be proud of your athletes perusing human excellence against the whole world.

@DeShobhaa a little harsh to belittle the hard work put in by our athletes …don't you think ?

Ms. De, kindly run on the hockey pitch for 60 mins & hold a rifle like Abhinav and Gagan. Bit tougher than u think https://t.co/XwZFKqZJjn
