Thou shalt not mock an Ambani

IN Media Watch Briefs | 06/01/2018

Alt News reports that eight websites deleted their stories on Ambani junior, Anant Ambani's speech at Reliance Industries' 40th anniversary event. His speech apparently took social media by storm, with lots of memes surfacing on Twitter. Stories on that trend which appeared on sites like ScoopWhoop, Storypick and DailyO were soon taken down.  MensXP, Nyoooz.com, The Social Monk, Social Samosa and International Business Times were other sites that Alt News says took down the story. Economic Times however did not mock Anant Ambani, called it a rousing speech, and no take down was needed.
