Tabloid Mumbai Mirror's headline '50 Shades Of Gay' for reporting designer Manish Malhotra's 50th birthday bash sparked outrage on Twitter with the newspaper facing criticism for being 'distasteful'.

The strapline of the story read, "Gaity, fun, high spirits and haute fashion marked Bollywood's favourite designer Manish Malhotra's landmark 50th birthday bash on Monday."

Though few users pointed the usage of word 'gay' for 'happy' in its archaic sense, several considered the headline 'tacky'.
