The Indian Railways Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) made an epic comeback after a user of its official ticket booking application complained of obscene advertisements on the app.
The IRCTC app user, named Anand Kumar, tweeted to IRCTC's official account, tagging Railway Minister Piyush Goyal, that he was seeing obscene ads on the IRCTC app and even attached screenshots of the advertisements visible on his mobile screen.
"Obscene and vulgar ads are very frequently appearing on the IRCTC ticket booking app. This is very embarrassing and irritating @RailMinIndia @IRCTCofficial @PiyushGoyalOffc kindly look into it," he tweeted.

The IRCTC's official customer support account, Indian Railways Seva, told Anand Kumar that the ads were based on cookies and asked the user to clear his own browsing history.
Soon after IRCTC's response on Twitter, social media flooded with memes, trolling the user.
Megha Kaveri tweeted, "When IRCTC burns you like there is no tomorrow."
