Twitter is generally never dull, Twitterati posts their views on anything and everything and they generally don’t have anything to hold back. So, when Tom Nichols, a US professor and academic specialist on international affairs, said the Indian food is terrible and we only pretend that it isn't. It let loose event the sanest minds. Oh, boy! Twitteratis were really in no mood to take this 'food blasphemy'. In no time Nichola's timeline was flooded with tweets that outrightly rejected his claim. Desi foodies were surely not impressed.
Nicholas was replying to a Twitter handle’s tweet urging people to quote ‘their most controversial food opinions’. And is some sure shot controversial ‘food opinion’

Nicholas’s opinion was surely unpopular and that was quite evident with replies to his tweets. In response to his tweet, author Padma Lakshmi asked Nicholas, “Do you not have tastebuds?”

Have a look at some of the reactions to Nicholas’s tweet on Indian food.

I'm just here for the raita. (And just about every other complex, subtle, sometimes exquisitely spicy but then artfully balanced by context dish that is part of the staggeringly varied cuisine sometimes called "Indian food.")— Tabatha Southey (@TabathaSouthey) November 23, 2019
I agree with Tom on many things. He is a wise man. But this is crazy. Tom, I will take you for Indian food when you’re in DC.— Mark Dubowitz (@mdubowitz) November 23, 2019
