New Delhi, September 4: Internet never forgets the faux paus. The bigger the blunder, the more you get nailed.

Showing his wit, porn star Johnny Sins thanked former Pakistan envoy to India Abdul Basit for “worrying about his vision”.

He wrote: “Shout out to @abasitpak1 for all the new twitter followers! Thanks but my vision is fine.”

In an embarrassing gaffe, former Pakistani High Commissioner to India, Abdul Basit, retweeted the picture of an adult movie star, mistaking him to be a Kashmiri protester who lost his vision due to pellet injury.

The ex-envoy’s tweet became the butt of jokes after being highlighted by Pakistan-based journalist Naila Inayat, who posted screenshots of Basit retweeting the post on Twitter.

Basit had retweeted a waggish post from the handle @blundertarar with a still from an adult film starring porn actor Johnny Sins.

Inayat tweeted: “Former Pakistani High Commissioner to India Abdul Basit, mistakes Johnny Sins for a Kashmiri man who lost vision from pellet. Unreal times these, really.”

The Twitter screenshots that Inayat had shared showed Basit retweeting a tweet with a picture and a message: “Yousuf from Ananthnag…lost vision due from pellet…pls raise your voice.” The former envoy later deleted the tweet.

Meanwhile, Naila’s tweet went viral and has been retweeted as well as circulated widely across social media. With Agencies
