Shobhaa De—who once said that Kate Middleton doesn’t have the ‘derriere’ to carry off a sari—has now body shamed a police officer.

She shared this old photo of a police officer (who is apparently an MP cop) during the civic elections and the Twitterati didn’t seem to find her pun funny. It soon caught the attention of the Mumbai Police and they shut her down perfectly.
We love puns too Ms De but this one is totally imisplaced. Uniform/official not ours. We expect better from responsible citizens like you. https://t.co/OcKOoHO5bX

De seems to have realised she made a mistake, or more likely, apologised after the Mumbai Police’s response went viral:
Mumbai/Maharashtra Police, pranaam. No offence intended. M.P. police, consult a dietician,if it's an asli ,undoctored image doing the rounds
