British journalist and television show host Piers Morgan criticised India’s performance at the Rio Olympics 2016 on Wednesday, after which he found himself at the receiving end of the trollers on Twitter.

Morgan, who is well known for saying controversial stuff shamed India for celebrating it’s meagre Olympic medal tally.

In his tweet today, Morgan said “Country with 1.2 billion people wildly celebrates 2 losing medals. How embarrassing is that?”

He also tweeted :

“If India can produce a batsman as brilliant as @sachin_rt then it can produce Gold medal-winning Olympians. Needs investment & focus.”
