Ekta in Twitter war

Producer Ekta Kapoor has landed herself into a Twitter war after lashing out at Swedish YouTuber PewDiePie. PewDiePie, whose real name is Felix Kjellberg, is the world’s largest YouTuber, having over 62 million subscribers. Felix, who is very popular for his videos recently did a video titled, You India You Lose, where he gave his reaction to the highly dramatic Indian shows, scenes and movies, including Ekta Kapoor’s daily soap, Kasamh Se. The video was in line of the series, You Laugh You Lose, where one has to try and control his laugh over funny videos. 

Well, this didn’t go down well with Ekta and she wrote on Twitter, “Just one thing anyone who suggests racial slur to my tweet (yes I read some tweets) should open this Youtuber’s (yes now I know who he is) video and see how he has trashed everything from Indian soaps to Indian superstars.”  The users were soon to spot this and started trolling Ekta. Some called her ‘cringy’ and ‘immature’ while others termed her as ‘downright racist’. As of now, PewDiePie has not reacted to Ekta’s tweet.
