Adult film star Johnny Sins thanked former Pakistani High Commissioner to India, Abdul Basit, for new Twitter followers after Mr Basit recently made an embarrassing goof-up and re-tweeted a picture of Johny Sins, passing it off as a Kashmiri pellet gun victim.
In a tongue-in-cheek comment, Johny Sins took to Twitter and thanked the former Pakistan envoy for making him all-the-more famous.
The adult film star mocked Mr Basit, saying that his "vision" is fine.
"Shout out to @abasitpak1 for all the new twitter followers! Thanks but my vision is fine," tweeted Sins.
The Ex-Pakistani High Commissioner to India was heavily trolled after he re-tweeted a picture of the adult movie star, mistaking him to be a Kashmiri protester who lost his vision due to pellet injury.
The ex-envoy's tweet became the butt of jokes after being highlighted by Pakistan-based journalist Naila Inayat who posted screenshots of Mr Basit re-tweeting the post on Twitter.
The tweet with a picture of Sins read, "Yousuf from Ananthnag,,,lost vision due from pellet...pls raise your voice (sic)."
Former Pakistani high commissioner to India Abdul Basit, mistakes Johnny Sins for a Kashmiri man who lost vision from pellet. Unreal times these, really. pic.twitter.com/9h1X8V8TKF— Naila Inayat नायला इनायत (@nailainayat) September 2, 2019
However, Mr Basit later deleted the tweet from his timeline.
This is not the first time that such a goof-up has been made by a Pakistani official.
Earlier, in even bigger goof-up, which caused Islamabad huge embarrassment, the country's permanent representative to the United Nations, Maleeha Lodhi, in 2017 showed a photo of a Palestinian girl at the world body, stating that it is a proof of "Indian brutality" in Kashmir.
