Recently, Yoga Guru Swami Ramdev has asked for boycotting Chinese products to protest China’s support to Pakistan.
In an interview to The Indian Express, Baba Ramdev said, “China makes money out of India and helps Pakistan”. In his interviews given to some other news channel, he called for boycotting Chinese goods saying that purchasing Chinese goods is like helping the enemy.
Swami Ramdev had tweeted the same saying that every nationalist Indian should boycott Chinese products. See the tweet below:
China has always betrayed us. Buying Chinese products is like helping the enemy. Every nationalist Indian should boycott Chinese products

But canny Twitterati found something in Ramdev’s tweet which made a mockery out of him. Swami Ramdev’s tweet was sent using an iPhone. Though it doesn’t show on the Web, you can see it if viewed via Tweetdeck. Tweeple dug it out and shared the screenshot of the same on social media.

We too verified the tweet via TweetDeck, a social media dashboard for Twitter and we found the same. Here is the screenshot of the verification:
In case you don’t know, Apple iPhones are ‘Designed in California’ but ‘Assembled in China’.
Now see how Swami Ramdev was massively trolled for his tweet using iPhone:

Well, it was all an Oops moment for Baba Ramdev !! But he probably would not have thought that his tweet will result out like this.
