Apprentice viewers are in mourning after Lord Sugar fires Karthik

An elegy in tweets


Nothing gold can stay. And neither can Karthik on The Apprentice. After an especially fractious episode, the fan favourite was sent home by Sir Lord Major General Alan Sugar


Twitter didn’t take it well, which is odd, because it’s usually so composed about these things.

Some found whatever comfort they could.

And others knew that as long as they remembered his teachings, Karthik would always be with them.

Although it wasn’t a total love-in.

And Karthik himself thought he was better off out of it.


Goodnight, sweet prince.
