Indian columnist and novelist Shobha De is receiving some major backlash for posting the wrong Chiranjeevi’s picture in a condolence post. Kannada actor Chiranjeevi Sarja passed away on June 7 and many celebrities expressed their grief on social media. Shobha De is one such celebrity, who took to twitter to share her condolences. However, instead of sharing a picture of the late Kannada actor, she ended up sharing a picture of Telugu actor Chiranjeevi, who is still very much alive. This mistake of hers is causing her some major backlash on social media. Even though she deleted the tweet only a few minutes later, she is still being brutally trolled by people online. This goof-up by Shobha offended a lot of people.
One person wrote, “When you don’t know who the actor is, why post such tweets?”
Another person wrote, “You should apologise for the wrong thing that you did.”
“As a Journalist you have to at least cross check before you tweet something but you didn’t do that. So, apologize to MegaStar Chiranjeevi right away,” someone wrote on twitter.
Many of Chiranjeevi’s fans are asking Shobha to apologize to the actor. But, ever since deleting the tweet, she hasn’t given any apology to the Telugu actor.
