Sehwag trolled for mishearing Imran Khan’s “insult” live on American TV channel
Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag who always keeps struggling to troll Pakistanis, but never his any attempt has turned fruitful.
In one fresh attempt, he has made himself subjected to trolling online. “You sound like a welder from the Bronx, says the anchor,” he quoted an American newscaster as saying and shared his video as well. But the truth was far from his reach as catching American accent must have been difficult for him and he drew a meaning of his own choice from the word which he misheard.
The cricketer’s mistake was first pointed out by Pakistani book author and columnist Mehr Tarar.
“Indians turning voter into welder to mock Prime Minister Imran Khan is one of the most hilarious things of 2019!
“First, to “mishear” a word, that’s just the inability to get American pronunciation of a very simple word. But then to use welder as gaali, now that’s just pathetic,” she tweeted.
Tagging the news anchor and the channel, she said it was the time they cleared this.
“Seriously. That’s the worst thing about this entire excruciatingly idiotic exercise of trolling: to use the word welder as a slur. Change a word, & make it into an abuse. How low it is to even think that being a welder is an insult,” the New York City-based author tweeted.
Sehwag had tweeted the video saying, “After the pathetic speech in the UN a few days ago, this man seems to be inventing new ways to humiliate himself.”
To Mehr Tarar’s tweet, the news anchor Joe Scarborough expressed astonishment over Indians’ taking voter as welder.
“What in the world are you even talking about? As I tweeted earlier, I said “voter” from the Bronx,” he said.
Tarar thanked the media person for clarification.
This is how people reacted to Sehwag’s futile attempt to troll the prime minister of Pakistan:
