British journalist and television host Piers-Morgan was at the receiving end of the social media for his frank but outrageous comments on Twitter. He made fun of the celebrations back in India for its two medal glory at Rio Olympics. Shuttler P.V. Sindhu and Sakshi Mallik were felicitated by a jubilant Indian public but the British journalist found it misplaced, embarrassing and exaggerated. Morgan had tweeted that a country of 1.2 billion celebrating two losing medals was very awkward. The tweet was followed by a barrage of tweets by thousands of angry Indian fans led by former cricketer Virendra Sehwag.

The Nawab of Najafgarh made fun of England’s failure to win a single World Cup in cricket, a game which has its genesis in England.
Sehwag says that Indians cherish even small happiness and the inventor of cricket, England despite never having won a World Cup continues to play the game.

Sehwag was followed by renowned author Chetan Bhagat who reminded that in spite of very poor sports infrastructure the country had won medals and this was amazing. However, Morgan who in the past had drawn flak for his distasteful comments on Twitter did not budge from his position and continued to make controversial statements.

He posted that Indian Twitter was useful for trolling and if that could be transferred to the athletes to help them win some medals in Olympics.
Columnist Sushil Seth also joined the debate. However, the English journalist continued his assault and replied to Sehwag. According to him, if Kevin Pieterson will be around England will win the World Cup. They have proved that in the World T20 trophy.

 

Mr. Sehwag’s response immediately went viral on Twitter with over 5,000 retweets and 5,600 likes in two hours.

Not one to back down easily, Mr. Morgan shot back saying had Kevin Pietersen still been playing, England would have won the world cup.

Sehwag, who likes his style of batting tore into the Englishman and said that KP was not born in England’ he was a  South African. By the same logic, England should have won the 2007 World Cup when Kevin was playing on the side.

 

Suhel Seth was more vicious and quipped that Steven’s interview was more embarrassing as if he had a diaper in his mouth. Morgan responded and reported that he never interviewed the ordinary.
However, there were some supporters for Morgan’s view and comedian Karan Talwar tweeted in support of the actor and felt that the celebration did not match the results.
