Author Chetan Bhagat has a huge fan following among the youth in India with his books. However, he has faced the brunt of trolls, time and again, for sharing his opinion on political and social issues. Recently, the 43-year-old amassed as many as 10 million followers on his Twitter account and he shared a celebratory tweet to express his delight.
Knowingly or unknowingly, he took a dig at the “cricketers, actors, models and politicians” in his zestful merrymaking. “No pouting selfies. No cleavage photos. No six pack displays. No position of power. No child of someone famous. No actor. No cricketer. No model. Just a writer who had a dream now with one crore followers. Thank you all for the 10 million. No words to express my gratitude. Stay positive,” he tweeted. Take a look at the picture attached with his tweet here.

The tweet left a lot of his followers exasperated and a few others couldn’t help but call it “cringeworthy” and “silly”. Check out some reactions to his tweet here. “Will you stop writing now? *Hopeful eyes*,” one Twitter user wrote.

Funnily enough, some Twitter users quipped about how could he even “have a cleavage”. “Congratulations!! But the point is, how can you have a cleavage??” one user wrote.

May be, he has cleavage in some other area of his body of which he is proud.

Ironically, soon after his tweet, his account reflected 9.9 million instead of 10 million, and people took a dig at him for that too! “Looks like .1 million unfollwed you after this cringy tweet,” one of them correctly pointed out.
