Actor and comedian Sunil Grover had to face the ire of the people on social media for posting a tweet that mocked PMC account holders. Sunil might have had positive intentions behind the tweet but his post came out as insensitive and several users slammed the Bharat-actor for making a joke in a bad taste. Realising the sensitivity of the matter, Sunil deleted the tweet within a few minutes.
The actor wished the festival of Dhanteras to his fans and wrote, “Happy Dhanteras to all! (Even to PMC account holders)” (sic). This upset many people on social media who schooled Sunil for not sensing the emotions of those who have been affected by the bank this festive season. One user wrote, “Sir do you have an account over there or you are enjoying the situation like a festival?” while another wrote, “That’s rude and insulting”. Check out the screenshot of Sunil’s tweet here:
