British journalist Piers Morgan faced the wrath of millions of Indians after making a humiliating comment about India’s performance during Rio Olympics. The journalist took to Twitter to post his comment.
Country with 1.2 billion people wildly celebrates 2 losing medals. How embarrassing is that? https://t.co/FYSBM7ErAf

As expected, the post infuriated the Indians and they brutally trolled Morgan and one Indian who was leading India’s reply was former Indian opener Virender Sehwag. The swashbuckling opener has been very active on Twitter since quitting the game and raise his voice in almost every matter.
We cherish every small happiness',
But Eng who invented Cricket,&yet2win a WC,still continue to playWC.Embarrassing? https://t.co/0mzP4Ro8H9

The war of words did not end here and the British journalist did a grave mistake by picking up a battle with the Nawab of Najafgarh. Morgan waged 1 million dollars on England winning the World Cup before India wins another gold at the Olympics.
Now the former swashbuckling opener has claimed on Twitter that he was invited by journalist Arnab Goswami to come and air his views on “that British guy” during his show The NewsHour.
But Sehwag being Sehwag replied in the most epic manner. Viru, as he is fondly called, said that the ‘guy’ doesn’t deserve any airtime and refused the proposal.
Arnab Goswami wants me to speak on that British guys views on India on NewsHour,but that man doesnt deserve any airtime,hence I have denied
