Sagarika Ghose gets slammed for her insensitive tweet on the Gandhis

Controversial journalist Sagarika Ghose who currently works for The Times Of India seems to have almost developed a habit for getting into needless controversies. During the recent political fiasco in Tamil Nadu she had written a cringe-worthy article stereotyping South India under the facade of humour for which she was heavily panned. Today, she got panned again.

Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala notified the press that the Congress VP Rahul Gandhi would be accompanying his mother Sonia Gandhi abroad for her medical checkup.

Even though the tweet amply stated that he was traveling with his mother on serious business, it didn’t stop Sagarika Ghose from attempted her infamous humor:

- Ad - - article resumes -

It is common knowledge that one of the most recurring jokes on Rahul Gandhi are based on his frequent foreign travels but Sagarika clearly didn’t display enough understanding to realise that this time, the prince was attending to a personal pressing matter, like every son should.

This understandably drew the ire of Congressies and their political allies:

Not surprisingly even Journalists lashed at Sagarika for her misfired joke:

Also as a touching gesture the Right Wingers who are on any day opposed to Rahul Gandhi and mock his policies, condemned her tweet, thereby furthering the idea that differences should always run skin deep and not get personal:

After facing all the outrage, Sagarika then deleted her tweet and  managed an apology of sorts:

Thank God she didn’t claim her account was hacked, like the time her husband cried wolf.
