Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Minister Faisal Vawda gained plenty of attention on social media after he attended the sending off ceremony of Pakistan Super League (PSL) franchise Karachi Kings in a yellow sports car on Sunday.
Vawda, who is known to be a car enthusiast, was trolled when pictures of him getting out of a bright yellow sports car started making the rounds. Karachi Kings owner Salman Iqbal had invited Vawda to the event and welcomed him upon his arrival.
While some mocked the minister for water resources over posing as a film star, others came to his defence opined that it was a formal event where he had to appear ‘presentable’.
Here’s how Twitterati reacted to the episode:

On a douche meter, these pictures of Vawda destroy the scale.
1) That tacky luxury sports car.
2) that motorcycle jacket.
3) His hideous personality.
Also, until Vawda is removed from public life Karachi has no right to call anyone else tacky. He’s taken 100% of that space. https://t.co/3etuwqKdId

He’s a bit of a caricature. Straight out of a comic book. 😆

Some of the PTI fans were impressed by Vawda and praised his style.
