Ekta Kapoor’s one-sided Twitter war with popular YouTuber PewDiePie, after he commented on the ‘quality’ of one of her shows, is getting out of hand, with people accusing her of racism.

Ekta Kapoor on Thursday responded to a Twitter spat after which certain people on Twitter called her racist. The controversy started when popular YouTuber, PewDiePie, watched one of her soaps and commented on its poor quality. Ekta responded on Twitter by comparing the Swedish YouTuber - who has over 59 million followers, making him the biggest YouTuber in the world - to a ‘junior artist’ she hires for her shows.
