The Titan takes wealthy customers deep into the ocean to catch a glimpse the HMS Titanic more than 12,000ft below sea level and has been missing since Sunday with a five people onboard.

This has sparked furious backlash online with large numbers taking to twitter to accuse Sarkar of being “vile” and “lacking compassion”. Popular YouTuber Mahyar Tousi tweeted in response to Sarkar: "Evil and heartless tweet purely based on envy and hate."
The well know Media Personality, Emily Hewertson added to the online criticism by tweeting: The fact that Ash Sarkar’s first thought was about the wealth of those aboard the submarine, rather than their safety tells you all you need to know about “communists.”
The bulk of online criticism against Sarkar revolves around her insensitivity around the subject with people accusing her of callously using an unfolding tragedy for her own communist centric political point scoring and trying to rack up likes and retweets.
Since Ms Sarkar's controversial tweet several memes have been circulating which mock the TV personalities tweet like this one from @grauniadmeme on Twitter.
