Ranveer is a troll target again Image: Facebook / GQ
Ranveer Singh just revealed that his family could only afford vacations to Indonesia, Singapore, Italy and the US, since they didn't have a whole lot of money. Hmm... that one make us scratch our heads, and Tweeple agree with us. Don't believe us? Just look for the hashtag #YoRanveerSoPoor on Twitter.
"We didn’t have a lot of money when I was growing up. So, my parents would save up and save up for that one big summer holiday abroad; I remember going to Indonesia, Singapore, Italy, but most often it was the US — we had a lot of family there. And December was always Goa with my grandparents," Ranveer said in an interview to Condé Nast Traveller.
The aam Tweeple obviously couldn't relate to Ranveer's middle-class woes, and are processing it the only way they know. Have a look.
Ranveer Singh's statement is such an insult to all the middle class families who had to make a lot of sacrifices to make ends meet and continue to work 60+ hours to be able to live comfortably.— Sonia Kapoor (@aishwaryaaraiii) May 4, 2018
Just ask my overworked parents. They'll tell you how much they sacrificed.
same. It’s just disrespectful and hurtful to those who actually had to struggle. he just wants to have the rags to riches story :/— lost soul (@theClaiire) May 4, 2018
So true! Generally celebs think twice before making a statement like that, but clearly he isn't one of them. And to think of it, the true fans and followers are from mostly middle class families who love to dream. It was such an insult to all of us.— Rashmi Nayak (@rashnayak) May 4, 2018
Soon, #YoRanveerSinghPoor started trending on Twitter, with people making memes and trolling him for his comments.
#YoRanveerSoPoor that his dad gifted him an expensive SUV for his bday but couldnt afford to get a one digit number plate for the car.— Od (@odshek) May 4, 2018
#YoRanveerSoPoor that he couldnt afford business class tickets for a family holiday to USA. Had to travel in economy class along with other peasants.— Od (@odshek) May 4, 2018
If making annual trips abroad in the 90s was the doings of the poor, we need new adjectives for the economic status of 65% of our country’s population. #YoRanveerSoPoor— BeingAlien (@Vaga__bound) May 5, 2018
