A message is being shared on social media claiming to be tweeted by Mukesh Ambani chairman and managing director of Reliance Industries Ltd. In the tweet, Ambani is seen hitting out at pop star Rihanna who recently tweeted in support of the ongoing farmers’ protest triggering a massive row.
A Facebook user shared the screenshot of the viral message written in Hindi, “रिहाना शायद भूल गयी कि एक बार भारत को गरीब बोलने पर मैने उसको अपनी बेटी की शादी पर रात भर अपने बंगले पे नचाया था !!”
(Translation: Rihanna may have forgotten that once calling India poor, I made her dance at my bungalow overnight at my daughter’s wedding!!)
We found the same message being attributed to Ambani on Twitter as well.
NewsMobile fact-checked the message and found it to be FAKE.
Firstly, we searched for the Twitter account (@iAmbanijio) which is claimed to be of Ambani and found that it is an unverified account and was created recently in January 2021.
Further, our investigation, we looked for the real Twitter account of Mukesh Ambani and found he doesn’t have one.
We also searched about Rihanna’s performance in Mukesh Ambani’s daughter Isha Ambani’s wedding (December 2018), but couldn’t find any report regarding this. This means Rihanna didn’t perform at the wedding. In fact, we couldn’t find any report about Rihanna attending the wedding at all.
Hence, from the above information, it is clear that the message from the Twitter account (@iAmbanijio) is falsely attributed to Mukesh Ambani as the business magnate doesn’t have any Twitter account.
