Although Twinkle Khanna didn’t have a thriving Bollywood career, she is doing pretty good in the field of writing and her two books “Mrs Funnybones” and “The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad” have been internationally acclaimed.
She is quite active on social media sites, especially Twitter, where she is widely acclaimed by followers for her wit and sense of humor. However, she is often criticized for her tweets and posts as well and once again, a similar thing has happened.
On Tuesday, Twinkle posted a pic of herself on the micro-blogging site. The photo showed her wearing a pyjama and sitting on a pile of books while her foot was on a stool; nevertheless, people believed that she kept her foot on books and for the same, they trolled her mercilessly.
First of all, take a look at the image Twinkle shared on Twitter:
“Sometimes I get to do this as well- like the Madonna song ‘Strike a pose -Vogue, Vogue Vogue!’ @VOGUEIndia”
Twitterati didn’t like her sitting on books’ pile and hence, some gave her a piece of advice while others took a dig at her. Check out some of the tweets:
Shld never sit or put foot on books.. It's Books (Vidhya) through which we have achieved great success.. @akshaykumar

Soon after this, Twinkle posted another pic; however this time, she attached a note in the pic for all those who got angry so early.
Here’s the note:
“P.S For the easily outraged : My foot is on a stool and not a book because I don’t want to get dust on the cover– aside from that I have no qualms with sitting on books, sleeping next to them or even keeping a pile in the bathroom to read regularly-The God of Wisdom visits you when you read books not worship them – Love and laughter from this bookworm.”
