Shashi Tharoor Committed a Grammar Mistake and Got Schooled by Suhel Seth, Twitterati had a Hearty Laugh About it
Shashi Tharoor is not only a competent politician but is also known as one of the most prolific users of impeccable English and has ensured that Twitterati learns a new word every day after reading his tweets. However, this time around Shashi Tharoor was at the receiving end because of a grammar mistake that he committed in one of his tweets and the person who pointed it out was Suhel Seth. Suhel Seth then went ahead to school Shashi Tharoor and corrected his tweet. The situation was truly ironic and Suhel Seth immediately caught the mistake in the tweet and posted the correct version. Shashi Tharoor who is known for using heavy English words even when he is expressing his ire did not comment but obviously must have been rattled. Twitterati obviously could not hide its glee and went all ahead to poke fun at Shashi Tharoor for his mistake and have a hearty laugh; after all, they wouldn’t like to miss such an opportunity no?
Shashi Tharoor had tweeted, “Delighted to have 20,000 live viewers for my #FacebookLive at lunchtime on New Year’s Day! Those whom missed it can view it at leisure on https://www.facebook.com/ShashiTharoor/videos/10155485107363167/ … @facebook.” Suhel Seth caught the grammatical mistake and pointed out that Shashi Tharoor has used ‘whom’ instead of ‘who’ which is a blunder. Adnan Sami caught Suhel Seth’s tweet and it blew up to epic proportions. Shashi Tharoor Commits a Typo in His Tweet And The Twitterati Was Quick To Crack Jokes At His Expense

Simple grammar is not a priority with Shashi Tharoor?
@ShashiTharoor is more into high funda English words and simple grammar does not seem to be his a priority.

Shashi Tharoor was expressing his gratitude to his viewers for joining his Facebook live on New Year’s Eve and tried to put it out in a lovely tweet but apparently, he made this mistake. Suhel Seth who is famous for slamming people on social media for the incorrect use of grammar schooled Shashi Tahroor as well with Twitter having a hearty laugh at the situation. However, this was not the first time that Shashi Tharoor had made a mistake, he was previously caught by Twitter users for making a typo which he blamed on auto correct feature on his phone.
