Earlier in day, the newly crowned Miss World gave a graceful reply to Tharoor’s tweet.


Following Manushi Chhillar’s victory at the Miss World 2017 pageant on Saturday, Tharoor had tweeted, “What a mistake to demonetise our currency! BJP should have realised that Indian cash dominates the globe: look, even our Chhillar has become Miss World!”

Tharoor’s witty tweet on Manushi backfired on him when the Twitterati slammed him.

After receiving backlash from tweeple, in another tweet, Tharoor issued an apology, saying, “Guess the pun IS the lowest form of humour, & the bilingual pun lower still! Apologies to the many who seem to have been righteously offended by a light-hearted tweet today. Certainly no offence was meant to a bright young girl whose answer i’ve separately praised. Please: Chill!.”

Tharoor was also summoned by the National Commission for Women (NCW) over his tweet. (ANI)
