Here's what Tharoor tweeted
What a mistake to demonetise our currency! BJP should have realised that Indian cash dominates the globe: look, even our Chhillar has become Miss World!— Shashi Tharoor (@ShashiTharoor) November 19, 2017
Here's how Twitterati reacted to the comment
Little did Tharoor know that his tweet on Manushi would not only attract hate comments from Twitterati but get him in trouble with the National Commission for Women, which accused him of degrading Manushi's achievement and demanded his apology.
While he was slammed unabashedly, one of his followers asked him why he was "demonetizing his own value."

Shashi Tharoor's public apology
Guess the pun IS the lowest form of humour, & the bilingual pun lower still! Apologies to the many who seem to have been righteously offended by a light-hearted tweet today. Certainly no offence was meant to a bright young girl whose answer i've separately praised. Please: Chill!— Shashi Tharoor (@ShashiTharoor) November 19, 2017
