Another blooper: DD News tweets Modi's cabinet meet picture saying 'Santa feeds monkeys'

Doordarshan is having a terrible time. Days after a video of its anchor covering the International Film Festival in Goa went viral as 'Dumb anchor at IFFI', the media channel goofed up again, this time on Twitter.

Another blooper DD News tweets Modis cabinet meet picture saying Santa feeds monkeys

DD News tweeted out a picture of Prime Minister Narendra Modi with his cabinet ministers including Amit Shah, Arun Jaitley, Sushma Swaraj and Rajnath Singh captioning it "A man dressed as Santa Claus feeds monkeys ahead of Christmas." Ouch!

As soon as they realised the mistake, DD News deleted the tweet and said this:

However, it's well known that when a media organisation goofs up on social media, people aren't very kind.

So, this is how people on Twitter made fun of DD News:

But, this time, social media wasn't too harsh on DD News and the employee who made the mistake. Maybe they learnt from the last time after reports said the IFFI anchor became distressed and suicidal following the criticism on social media.

DD has made some major bloopers this year. In September, while anchoring the late night bulletin on DD News, a 'casual' anchor, pronounced Chinese President Xi Jinping's name as 'Eleven' Jinping, obviously confusing Xi with the Roman numerical for eleven. The anchor was then removed. In the IFFI video, the anchor was seen introducing the Governor of Goa Mridula Sinha as the "Governor of India".
