New Delhi:

Actress Divyanka Tripathi tweeted an apology of sorts after a section of the Internet pointed out that her tweet about empty Mumbai roads amidst the coronavirus outbreak appears to be "insensitive." In a tweet on Tuesday morning, the Yeh Hai Mohabbatein actress wrote: "With such less traffic in Mumbai, it seems like an opportunity to quickly complete metro, bridges and smooth roads." Her tweet garnered responses like "As if the engineers and construction workers lives aren't important. Such a vague and unrequired tweet at this moment." Divyanka not only deleted her tweet but also responded to an offended user by offering apologies: "My apologies. Point taken." In a separate tweet, Divyanka wrote: "We all are humans and susceptible to errors. In this volatile and violent social media world, important question is: If someone's capable of realizing and apologizing... are you capable of forgiving and moving on?"

She added: "Should everything be news and point of argument? Where's humanity there?"
