You can run, you can hide, but you can't escape Twitter's watchful eye. Anushka Sharma learned that the hard way when a Twitter user noticed that she was promoting Google's Pixel 2XL phone... through a tweet posted using her Apple iPhone. On Tuesday, the Sui Dhaaga actress shared a tweet with two adorable photographs to promote Pixel 2XL's camera. However, popular American YouTuber Marques Brownlee noticed that the tweet was posted from an Apple iPhone, one of Google's biggest rivals.
He called Anushka Sharma out in a tweet that has been 'liked' over 48,000 times since it was posted a day ago.
Ok I don't even want to know how this keeps happening but it's hilarious pic.twitter.com/sUuHVh4exw- Marques Brownlee (@MKBHD) September 4, 2018
Though Anushka promptly deleted the original tweet and shared the post again, it was too late. Twitter already had screenshots and did not seem to be in a forgiving mood.

Marques even had a reply for one person who defended Anushka Sharma, saying that she probably clicked the pictures from a Pixel phone and transferred them to her iPhone.
Maybe the photo transfered from a Pixel phone and posted from an iPhone- Assem (@assemdido) September 4, 2018
Surprisingly enough, this is not even the first time that Marques Brownlee has called a celebrity out for endorsing rival brands using iPhone. Back in April, he had trolled Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot for tweeting an ad for Huawei using an iPhone:

Very recently, in a similar incident, Chinese smartphone maker Huawei was left embarrassed when Reddit users discovered they had been using a DSLR camera to fake smartphone selfies.
