Maybe Nadiya Hussain is just too innocent for the Internet and its vicious nature. The Bake Off queen recently asked her 181,000 followers on Twitter about spit roasting, but her whole concern was taken up in the wrong way.

The 33-year old posted on her Twitter account: "Has anyone spit roasted before? If so any tips? Any recommendations? Need to get summer ready for a special party #BBQ #summer2018."

However, she was completely naive about the sexual connotations related to her query, and Twitter wasted no time in roasting her about her ignorance. The tweet, which has hence been deleted, got scores of responses from her twitter followers, including hilarious gifs, memes and naughty messages.

Spit roasting is ideally a cooking technique where an animal pierced with a metal rod and roasted over a fire, but people on social media called Nadia “You’re too pure for this world,” when she did not think of the sexual innuendo associated with the cooking technique.

Nadiya won the prestigious British competition in the year 2015, at the age of 30. She recently admitted that she felt she was being labeled on the show because of her religion, and she “struggled” at the beginning.

“I certainly didn't enter a baking show in the hope of representing anyone,” she told the Radio Times. “Being a Muslim for me was incidental, but from the day the show was launched, I was 'the 30-year-old Muslim' and that became my identity.”
