Spellchecker and autocorrect can put you in a major trouble sometimes. Recently when veteran thumri artist Girija Devi passed away, Javed Akhtar took to Twitter to pay his condolence.
But little did he know that he would be trolled for a tweet that went wrong due to autocorrect!
Akhtar wrote ‘SINNER’ instead of ‘SINGER’ and "national treasurer" instead of treasure. Twitterati, on the other hand, had a ball while taking potshots at Akhtar's mistake. Here are some funny reactions:
your message is in extreme poor taste . She was a great singer beside that I knew her personally . Be a little sensitive— Javed Akhtar (@Javedakhtarjadu) October 24, 2017

Akhtar apologised as soon as he realised his mistake!
