Orwell’s 1945 novella Animal Farm is a serious book discussing the rise of Stalinism through allegory of animals in a farm, their revolution and subsequent chaos. But Shilpa Shetty, obviously hadn’t read the book and assumed the book is for children about farm pets.

Her remarks prompted a slew of memes and jokes on Twitter with the hashtag #ShilpaShettyReviews trending on Twitter. Many Twitter users joked about deciphering a book based on the title. Here are some tweets:

An embarrassed Shetty took to Twitter to clarify: Whilst I admire the writers of LOTR, Harry Potter & Animal Farm I've "NEVER" read these books(@ the cost of soundin even dumber!)Not my kind.”

She added: “So recommending them to kids is out of the question! Obviously some misunderstanding…Don't want to get into it. This too shall pass.”

Her husband and an avid tweeter himself, Raj Kundra defended her saying: “People wait for a chance to pounce! Chill don't believe everything you read in the press! I have shared real vs reel.”
