Throughout Rio Olympics, 2016, Shobhaa De made a string of unsavory remarks about India’s participation in the games. She mocked Indian athletes and made lewd comments about winners.
Members of the Twitterati spewed oodles of hatred against her for doing so.
But this time, she has pointed out at something really important:
She tweeted about it after news went viral that Sachin Tendulkar, Brand Ambassador of BMW has presented a luxury car each to Sakshi, Dipa, Sindhu and coach Gopichand.
Most of us, ignored the cost a BMW will charge for its maintenance and fuel. Shobhaa De called it an advertising gimmick by BMW.
Take a look at Shobhaa DE’s tweet:
Great ad for BMW. Who will pay for running these pricy beasts? Hoping they don’t become white elephants for athletes pic.twitter.com/MX0od5sTt3

She has also pointed a finger at Sachin Tendulkar, when news reports said that Sachin will be handing over the cars to the Olympic Winners.
Here’s a small, annoying but pertinent question: Did Sachin T pay for the BMWs he ‘gave away ‘ to Rio athletes?

Sachin is the God of cricket and his fans surely won’t like Shobhaa De’s comment, but asking the right questions. What do you think?
