The Pink actor served a subtle burn when a social media user talked about her body parts in a tweet shared on Monday. Her response has since caused a surge in Google search for “cerebrum”.  

It’s the age of internet, people, where a troll might have the liberty to post anything, but not without incurring some damage in the process. Most recently, though, the responsibility fell upon Bollywood actor Taapsee Pannu to shut down a sexist Twitter user, while teaching him a thing or two about the human anatomy.

The latest debacle happened when a social media user tweeted at Taapsee, making a rather inappropriate comment, objectifying the Pink actor. “@taapsee i love your body parts,” read the distasteful tweet posted by a user, who goes by the name of Aku Pandey.

Not one to take such a sexist and tasteless comment without responding in kind, the model and actor hit back with a savage response. In one swift jab, Taapsee shut down the user  replying that she is also a big fan of them, body parts, and asking “BTW which is your favourite? (sic)”

“Mine is the cerebrum,” she cheekily added.

Her response unsurprisingly caused a social media furore, with most people siding with Taapsee and even applauding her for her witty comeback.

“Terribly mean of you to boast about a body part which the troll doesn't have,” wrote a user by the name of Sushant Sareen.

“Just love how she handles everything let it be her troll or anything. @taapsee is like SRK when it comes to wit while replying on Twitter,” added a second user.

A third one chimed in, writing, “Good one, perfect response. Fairly confident he doesn’t know what cerebrum is!” It’s highly possible that the user is actually right.

Soon after Taapsee sent social media wild with her “cerebrum” tweet, there has been a surge on Google search for this particular part of the brain. One of the actor’s Twitter followers was kind enough to point this out with a snapshot of Google India’s search trend from last night.

“You actually caused a surge in @GoogleIndia 's search trend last night and today ( after your tweet at 9 pm ) for 'cerebrum' looks like Mr Pandey and his friends were busy trying to figure out what it meant,” the Twitter user wrote.

Just in case, cerebrum is the largest part of the brain, that is divided into four regions called lobes that control senses, thoughts, and movements.
