With majority of us being confined to our houses during the country wide lockdown, celebrities from all walks of life have been giving us inspiration on the things we can do while in quarantine. And Sharmila Faruqui too piqued the interest of many by sharing videos of her cooking.
However, she was trolled heavily for a mere slip of tongue where she called the red snapper fillet a ‘chicken fillet,’ not wanting to record the entire video again, Sharmila uploaded it to her Instagram account thinking that people will understand the obvious slip of tongue, but that didn’t happen. She in fact became meme fodder for the entertainment starved nation and people were not kind to say the least.
She begins by telling us she’s making chicken fillets. For this recipe she’s using red snapper/white fish?? What?? 😂 pic.twitter.com/5x85pRasEj

The exposè of the year:
Quarantine day 13: realising you can simply cut the tail of chicken fillet to make red snapper, these stupid restaurants have been charging us so much for bare minimum

Some were very observant!
Sure. Y’all are focusing on chicken fillet dressed as red snapper, but did you notice the garnishing before the seasoning?

Some actually turned it into a pick up line, whoa!

Quoting an article that called her slip of tongue rather ‘bizarre,’ she went on to explain how the video had blown out of proportion:
Sharmila shared how the trolling had her feeling all sorts of ways, from being shocked to being amused and then being happy, she was glad that she provided some comic relief. Sharmila then put the trolls back in their place by posting yet another video calling her fillet ‘a chicken red snapper fillet’ followed by her contagious laughter!
And the internet is loving the shade!
Quarantine blues who?
