Shobhaa De posted something which caused her to face the wrath of Twitter community and players as well!
This time at the receiving end, she went below the belt and posted a rather demeaning tweet about Indian Players competing at 2016 Olympics 2016!
Goal of Team India at the Olympics: Rio jao. Selfies lo. Khaali haat wapas aao. What a waste of money and opportunity.

Within minutes, she was criticized for her tweet, and was trolled by aam janta as well as celebrities.

Ms. De, kindly run on the hockey pitch for 60 mins & hold a rifle like Abhinav and Gagan. Bit tougher than u think https://t.co/XwZFKqZJjn

Sportsperson Abhinav Bindra and Jwala Gutta also were the one with responses, and gave her a punching reply:

@DeShobhaa that’s a tad unfair. You should be proud of your athletes perusing human excellence against the whole world.

That’s the way! Kudos to both Abhinav and Jwala!
