  • Congress MP Shashi Tharoor took a dig at Miss World Manushi Chhillar 
  • His apparent 'joke' was slammed by the internet mercilessly 

Not too long ago, senior Congress MP Shashi Tharoor was slammed by BJP Union Minister Smriti Irani and a fellow party member Jyotiraditya Madhavrao Scindia for his 'Maharajas' comment. Following the backlash he received for his 'maharaja' comment, the Congress MP took to Twitter to clarify his statement. One would have thought that was the end of Shashi Tharoor speaking recklessly, after all the blunder was acknowledged by a fellow party member too. However, in yet another outrageous comment Tharoor was slammed by the internet and how. 

On Saturday, the internet was tweeting with pride after Manushi Chhillar won the title of Miss World, making her the first Indian after Priyanka Chopra to win this prestigious title.

This poor misogynist tweet against Miss World led to outrage across Twitter within minutes:
