Namita Thapar, the executive director of Emcure Pharmaceuticals has come under the radar of trolls on social media over her recent tweet. She recently accused her educated house help of stealing her phone and posing a hateful post about her on social media. While netizens believed the post was shared by one of her two sons, she blamed her house help for the same. The viral post claimed Namita is not the same person we see on TV and even asked people to unfollow her.
An Instagram Story on Namita's account showed her, clad in a blue nightie, posing at her home. The post read, “This is Namita's son. I just want the world to know that the person you see on TV is not you think she is. Unfollow her as soon as possible. Will explain why in due course of time.” The Shark Tank India judge deleted this post and later clarified tweeting, “This is what hate does to this world, makes people toxic. An educated house help who was removed stole my phone & put a hateful post on me on social media. Price of being a public figure! Apologies!” ALSO READ: Shark Tank 2: Namita Thapar Gets Into A Disagreement With Peyush Bansal And Amit Jain Over A Deal; Says, ‘Inn Logon Ki Himmat’- WATCH
