Queen of talkshows Oprah Winfrey has rubbed Indians the wrong way.

Oprah, who visited India earlier this year, has sparked outrage after the recent broadcast of a two-part TV special about her trip to India. In the show, she said: 'I heard some Indian people STILL eat with their hands.'

Put off by the remark, author Shobha De tweeted: 'Oprah's Last Chapter!That's what angry Indians r calling the much hyped bt ridiculously shabby show.Oprah has lost her groove.Honey,pack up!'

Actress Sandhya Mridul tweeted: 'Dear @Oprah yes many of us still eat with our hands just as many of you use your hands to massacre people in a movie hall!'

Whereas Mini Mathur unfollowed her and tweeted: 'It's time to unfollow @Oprah.'

Arshad Warsi's wife and actress Maria Goretti ‏tweeted: 'it is so sad @minimathur that someone as inspirational as @oprah just did not get the pulse of India, her loss completely ..'
