Social media has often been a space where stars wash their dirty linen in public. However, the public is quick to pull one up if they cross the line.

Recently, Puneet Issar’s daughter, Nivriti, got flak on Twitter, when she wrote a scathing post about Karishma Tanna, her father’s co-contestant on an ongoing reality show. The two have been part of a few tiffs on the show of late.

Nivriti’s post read, "


— Did her father die a natural death ? or did he kill himself for having a daughter like her who has no sense?? (sic)."

Twitterati were quick to express their disapproval, terming the tweet 'insensitive", "shameful", "disgusting" and "crass", among other things.

Karishma and Puneet initially got along well on the show, and she even told the him that he reminded her of her own father. On many occasions, she spoke about her dad’s demise as well.

But, the jovial bond didn’t last, and the two were at loggerheads over a variety of issues. Puneet even went to the extent of calling her names like "bimbette" and "dufferandu".
