On Thursday at least 20 soldiers were killed and 11 others injured when militants ambushed their convoy in Manipur in the worst such attack on the Indian Army in a decade.

Hrithik Roshan took to Twitter the same day to condemn the attack and wrote, "My heartfelt condolences to d families of the 20 jawans killed in a mindless ambush by Manipur tribals...Salute"

Expressing disapproval over the use of the word 'tribals' instead of militants in Hrithik's tweet, Twitteratis started reacting. Though the 'Bang Bang' actor corrected his mistake five hours later in a tweet that read, "Correction- unidentified Manipur tribal militant groups .. To be more precise", the damage had been done.

Here are some of the reactions to Hrithik's tweet:

Santoesha Bissesar @MsSantoesha:

Tenzing L @tenzinglungten:
@iHrithik what an ignorant man you are. learn the difference between tribals and Militants.

Utpal Borpujari @UtpalBorpujari:
@iHrithik: "Manipuri tribals" equivalent to terrorists? Should 't you be using the term "Manipuri terrorists", or "terrorists in Manipur"?
