AMITABH GETS TROLLED FOR WISHING AFRICA ON WINNING WORLD CUP

Amitabh Bachchan is one of the most followed celebrities on Twitter who always keeps his fans updated about his daily routine. Recently the actor came to media attention when he mistakenly wrote;  'thats it then Africa won the world cup 2018'.  As per the fact, most of the players in the French team were of African origin which fled to this European nation for a better lifestyle. This didn't go well with the Tweeple and they started trolling the actor for his unclear words. Some of the Tweets are mentioned below: [caption id="attachment_42864" align="alignnone" width="373"] source/twitter[/caption] [caption id="attachment_42865" align="alignnone" width="381"] source/twitter[/caption] On the other side, Kiran Bedi who is currently deployed at Pondicheri as its Lieutenant Governor gets trolled for praising French victory in the FIFA finals. She wrote;

'We the Puducherrians (erstwhile French Territory) won the World Cup. Congratulations Friends. What a mixed team-all French. Sports unites'.

Back then, there were a number of controversies regarding the origins of the players as well, with their top players such as Zinedine Zidane and Lillian Thuram which were also from immigrant backgrounds and became victims of a number of racist comments. However, after their win, the team was hailed as the 'Rainbow Team', with the slogan 'black, blanc, beur', which literally translates to 'Black, white, Arab' becoming highly popular.
