US academic Tom Nichols has been censured by the internet including Zomato after he criticised Indian food in a rude post on Twitter on Sunday. It all began with a Twitter user, Jon Becker's post as he asked netizens to write about their "most controversial food opinion" on the micro-blogging platform.
"Please quote tweet this with your most controversial food opinion, I love controversial food opinions," Jon Becker said in his post. For your reference, here's the post that escalated the aforementioned controversy.
Along with several others, Tom Nichols also responded to Jon Becker's tweet but was severely trolled for his opinion on Indian cuisine. "Indian food is terrible and we pretend it isn't," Tom Nichols said and that was enough to enrage Twitter.
