'This young girl suffered for an innocent picture': Tharoor shuts trolls over pic with woman
Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor on Wednesday lashed out at trolls who took swipes over a photograph of him with a woman at an event.
Taking to Twitter, Tharoor said they should realise there are real human beings involved in their abuse.
His comments came over a tweet by a woman who took down her pictures with Tharoor after the trolling.
"It breaks my heart how the RW right-wing people are using my pictures with Tharoor sir in the wrong context and spreading misinformation for the sake of political gains," she said.
The post went on to say she met him at a literature festival to which she had been invited. "..., like any other person clicked a few pictures too for the great author he's. There are no political or personal stories related to it. I have always looked upto him," she added.
Tharoor, the Congress MP from Thiruvananthapuram and a prolific author, tagged her tweet in his response.
"Trolls should realise there are real human beings involved in their abuse.
"This young girl has suffered for an innocent picture taken at a reception for over a hundred people, at which I must have posed for photos with over fifty! Keep your sick minds to yourselves, trolls!" he said.
