Porn star Johnny Sins is the latest person to take a dig at former Pakistani High Commissioner to India, Abdul Basit, following the ex-envoy's gaffe on Twitter.
It all happened when Basit retweeted a picture of Sins, mistaking the adult actor for a Kashmiri protester who had lost eyesight owing to a pellet attack.
"Yousuf from Ananthnag,,,lost vision due from pellet...pls raise your voice," Basit captioned the picture.
Sins presently took to Twitter to assure his vision was fine, and also to congratulate Basit for the whole new lot of followers he had inadvertently garnered thanks to his goof-up.
"Shout out to @abasitpak1 for all the new twitter followers! Thanks but my vision is fine," @JohnnySins tweeted.

Basit's post became a joke on social media after Pakistani journalist Naila Inayat brought it to focus. Inayat posted screenshots of the retweet, and her post went viral in no time.
Basit's tweet had 6.3 K re-tweets before the former envoy deleted it.
