Anand Mahindra posted the most savage yet surprisingly polite response to a Twitter user who called him ‘stupid’. The business tycoon, who is active on the micro-blogging site and famous for his tweets, schooled the man with the perfect tongue-in-cheek reply in all but three sentences.
It all started when Mahindra posted a tweet saying he is “often accused of being stupidly optimistic” while sharing an article about the Indian economy earlier today. He added further that he hopes one day the “adjective ‘stupid’ will be discarded”.
I’m often accused of being stupidly optimistic. If this trend continues then perhaps the adjective ‘stupid’ will be discarded...😊 https://t.co/nD10q8VETk— anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) January 24, 2020
A Twitter user promptly replied to this tweet, beginning his post with, “Yes, you are stupid.” He went to complain about several things - right from electricity issues to the government and the opposition.
Yes , you are stupid .— Aarav (@Aarav93555583) January 24, 2020
India cud nt yet arrange for electricity, water, roads and law and order and now Modi & company has made sure that we stay in a turmoil for another 42 months and to add to it Rahul Gandhi , the dumb is leading the opposition
To this, Mahindra posted the most nonchalant yet sarcastic reply that has since won over Twitter.
Your pessimism is quite comprehensive. Is there ANYTHING you are optimistic about? Or have you exiled yourself to a remote cave in the mountains? Let me know if I can get Swiggy to send you a food package! 😊 https://t.co/R43n19RdIj— anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) January 24, 2020
Looks like Mahindra’s message is loud and clear - he isn’t one to be messed around with.
Since being posted a few hours ago, the tweet has collected over 7,500 likes and more than 1,100 retweets - and still counting. The reply has won over many.
@anandmahindra....I guess it is best to avoid responding to such comments and even ignore it. Twitter handle is an open platform accessible to all. Either one should be ready to deal with all types or remain restrained & selective about what one wishes to post or interact with.— Sundar (@sunsuji17091) January 24, 2020
