She was called out over the nine-year old tweet and a campaign was initiated against her.

Japleen Pasricha was condemned for her regressive thought process.

The tweet has also sparked a lot of casteist attacks against Savarnas. Sumit Chauhan, an Ambedkarite journalist, said that Savarnas are ‘mentally sick’ people and ‘highly casteist’ by nature.

Earlier, comedian Neville Shah had issued an apology for a 5-year old joke where he had mocked ‘quota admission’.
