Armaan, who was a contestant in the seventh season of the reality show, slammed the news website on Twitter on Thursday. The actor wrote that the website has hit the pits of social media, and could have turned his tweet into something very interesting, instead of “degrading” him and calling it a “desperate” move. Armaan further lamented the state of media.
He went on to say that the original tweet that he posted wasin good humour for the people who love him.Armaan questioned the news website if they really think that he cannot call Salman. After much criticism, the news website took down the story as Armaan tweeted that they should not think that he is an actor who would quietly tolerate such stories.
