Ravichandran Ashwin was trolled on Twitter after he posted a promotional tweet for Redmi Phone. Almost all major cricketers who enjoy a following in millions on social media often post promotional content for various brands. However, the fans didn’t take the tweet positively this time as they trolled Ashwin as there was a notable mistake in the post.
The Indian off-spinner had tweeted, “There’s often a debate on reading my carrom ball but, there are some things jinpe #KoiDebateNahi! Redmi Note4: India’s No.1 selling smartphone.”
However, the fans didn’t expect the same from the cricketer and went all guns blazing against the Indian spinner. Here are some of the potshots taken against Ashwin:-
A user tweeted that was the money he earned from playing cricket and advertising was not enough that now he’s started doing paid tweets.
lol, cricket aur ads se kam paisa milta he ke ab paid tweet bhi karne lag gaye sir !

Another user pointed out a hilarious mistake. The tweet from Ashwin’s account that was promoting Redmi Note 4 actually came from an iPhone.

Someone found this as an opportunity to troll him for his unsatisfactory performance in the limited-overs internationals.

Another troll, this time on him being dropped (or rested as the selectors say)

Some constructive criticism over the tweet.
Theva illadha vela. When will people realize that blatant endorsements such as these is destructive to both the brand and the celebrity?

This user is more interested in the financial aspect.

And finally, Ashwin was questioned for promoting a Chinese product in spite of all the issues and tension that is going on between both the countries at the border.
