Chef Lata Tondon, who holds the Guinness World Record for the longest cooking marathon, has called for peace after Nigerian social media users stormed her pages with taunts and insults.
Reports say that the incident nearly sparked a social media war of words between Nigerians and Indians.
Tondon had earlier congratulated Nigerian chef Hilda Baci, who was at that time attempting to break the record.
With a caption of her, Lata wrote on Instagram:
“All the best, Hilda. Hope to see you on the Official Site of the Guinness Book of World Records soon.”
However, some Nigerians insulted the lady after the Nigerian broke her record on Monday.
In response, Tondon wrote on Instagram, saying, “sisters and brothers in Nigeria and India to maintain peace and wait for Guinness to officially announce if the current record is broken or not.”
