There seems to be a lot of global interest around India’s performance at the Rio Olympics, what with people still opining on the issue. In India, it’s mostly a celebration of the two medals we did manage to bring home, while voices questioning the validity of the celebratory fist-pumps have been drowned out. Recently, Pakistani journalist Omar R Quraishi picked an uncalled-for fight with the Indian Twitterati after tweeting about Indian Olympians. Now, joining him is another renowned journalist – UK’s Piers Morgan.

Morgan shared his opinion on team India’s run in Rio saying, “Country with 1.2 billion people wildly celebrates 2 losing medals. How embarrassing is that?” he wrote in reply to a tweet from an Indian that mentioned how the two medallists Sakshi Malik and PV Sindhu were welcomed in India.

Given the love the two girls have received in India for making the country proud and shining for their brilliant performance at the Olympics, it was not surprising that the journalist got slammed by Indians on the platform.

Even Suhel Seth and Chetan Bhagat responded to his tweet rather condescending tweet. It’s amusing how he is picking on most of his trolls by replying to them in the same patronising tone. “What is even more embarrassing are your snivelling interviews as if you had a diaper in your mouth. Sad,” said Seth, to which, Morgan responded, “At least you’ll never have to worry about being one of my interviewees, Suhel. I only interview famous people.”

And here’s what another thing he had to say about the ‘Indian Twitterati’, “Indian Twitter definitely wins Gold at trolling. If only their athletes were as skilled.”

To which, the tweeple responded:

And you cannot miss Morgan’s responses.

If only people the world over would let the India’s sports ministry worry about India’s performance at Rio!
