Social share icons

Shobha De has been a controversial figure for most of this past decade, but there have been times where she’s gone over the edge. Or we think she’s definitely smoking something. She’s said some ridiculous things that even if we ask her to clarify, we’d cringe.

Whenever we think of Shobha De, we think TRIGGGGGERRRRRRRED!!!!!!

Here are some of her most controversial tweets –

#1 Taking on an entire country

“Goal of Team India at the Olympics: Rio jao. Selfies lo. Khaali haat wapas aao. What a waste of money and opportunity.”
We wonder what she would have said if this was a tweet after Twitter’s character update. Expect paragraphs of complaining afterwards.

#2 Fat-shaming and country-shaming

#3 Sometimes right?

Who says she’s always wrong. Sometimes she can make a lot of sense when there’s something ridiculous that the government does, especially when they were trying to play Marathi movies during prime time (6-9pm). Remember that? Remember that feeling you got when you heard that ridiculous idea was going to get passes?
“No more pop corn at multiplexes in Mumbai? Dahi misal and vada pav only. To go better with the Marathi movies at prime time .”


#4 Sometimes we can’t help but say – WTF?

#5 Hungry for attention

This was the limit of Shobha De’s insensitivity. She didn’t get the message right and just wanted to use social media as a clout-machine. Rest assured she lost a lot of respect in the media and in the celebrity-sphere. While millions of Indians were mourning her loss, Shobha De was talking about comedy.

Sometimes we’re just left saying – WTF lady! Why do you want to trigger a whole country with your non-sense? Wasn’t Ram Gopal Verma enough?
