While everyone seems to have an opinion, perhaps the most controversial tweet came from Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who used the news to push his own plans to seek full statehood for the city.
People really weren't on board with Kejriwal trying to co-opt this unrelated event to push his own agenda.
He became the butt of all the jokes Twitter could think of.
He also gave birth to a whole new joke format.
Even Kejriwal's parody accounts threatened to shut shop because they thought he was hogging all the good material for himself.
