Shiv Sena leader Priyanka Chaturvedi has led Twitterati in calling out a well known Marathi journalist for his misogynist tweet about Devendra Fadanvis' wife- Amruta Fadnavis.

After Devendra Fadnavis' resignation from the post of Chief Minister wherein he lasted for only 3 days and 8 hours, journalist Nikhil Wagle tweeted, "Which song will sister-in-law sing today, Devendra brother?"

The tweet, now deleted, didn't go down well. Twitterati called it to be below the belt and not in a good taste. Priyanka Chaturvedi called the comment 'shameful' and tweeted, "Have some shame before you tweet such nonsense about any woman, you had tweeted something as disgusting about me as well when I had joined Shiv Sena. I stayed quiet then but not now. Won’t have any woman humiliated like this. Itna na giro ke uthna mushkil ho jaaye."
