‘Are You On Twitter’: Noted journalist Megyn Kelly asks PM Modi and gets trolled on Twitter.

Former Fox News host and current NBC’s anchor Megyn Kelly gets mocked on twitter over her lack of knowledge about PM Modi’s twitter profile.

Kelly who recently launched her new show for NBC had interviewed Russian President Vladimir Putin and India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi ahead of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum in Russia.

After this, America journalist Megyn Kelly started facing the wrath of Indian social media users, after the question she posed to PM Modi: ‘Are you on Twitter’?

A teaser video released earlier by NBC showed Kelly greeting the two world leaders at the Konstantin Palace. Modi tells her that he saw a picture she had posted on Twitter of her posing with an umbrella in St Petersburg.

“I saw your tweet…..with the umbrella” says PM Modi to which Megyn replied, “Oh…really, Are you on twitter”?

What followed was a massive backlash against reporter with tweets criticising her for ‘not doing her homework’ and for perpetuating the stereotype of a ‘clueless American’.
