National Politics AIB in trouble again for making fun of PM By Nitika Sethi Posted on July 19, 2017 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Share on Pinterest Share on Linkedin The comedy group All India Bakchod is in trouble, yet again. An FIR has been lodged against the group and its members for defamation and posting offensive content on social media under the IT Act owing to a joke they posted on Twitter which showed Prime Minister Narendra Modi waiting at a railway station and using the dog filter on Snapchat. The picture came along with a hashtag ‘Wanderlust’. They also behaving like agony aunty pic.twitter.com/ykeVBoTax8 — Verma Abhishek (@imverma) July 13, 2017 The joke was aimed at Modi’s multiple foreign visits and was not very well received. It invited a horde of trolls who not only attacked the group itself but also asked Mumbai police to take an action against the group. Mumbai police, recently in the news after laughing off a woman’s complaint of a man who was masturbating in a local train, were quick to respond and claimed that they forwarded the complaint to the cyber cell of the police department. At least not COWARD & Hypocrite like you all at AIB. Relax, Rohan! The rhetoric isn't going to build a spine for you. Please keep crawling! https://t.co/vaKhu21Dbg — Gaurav Pandhi (@GauravPandhi) July 13, 2017 As I said in the morning. Your intentions matter the most. AIB's intention is not to make people laugh but to hurt. AIB will die eventually. https://t.co/QWcyWG05Cn — Maithun (@Being_Humor) July 12, 2017 Admit it that AIB deliberately posted that pic knowing that few will get angry and they can delete and later play victim, as usual. — Ankur Singh (@iAnkurSingh) July 13, 2017 An FIR has been lodged against AIB under the IT Act for defamation and posting offensive content on social media, the punishment for which is a fine of Rs 5 Lakh and up to three years of imprisonment. AIB took down the tweet and was again criticized as ‘cowards’ and ‘hypocrites’ by Congress leaders. Congress leaders questioned AIB for their countless skits and jokes aimed at Congress over the years, claiming to talk about serious issues like politics via the medium of jokes, and yet refraining from making fun of the current government. This is @AllIndiaBakchod style of FoE But why blame them when we have enough "Cool Dudes" in India who clap on such SHIT jokes pic.twitter.com/odEhiZTvoE — #GauravPradhan 🇮🇳 (@DrGPradhan) July 13, 2017 they made fun of sachin sir / Lata mam… so they think they r cool n they can do anything.. — Yogesh Singh Chauhan (@YCtwi) July 13, 2017 Tanmay Bhat and Rohan Joshi, both members of AIB, responded curtly by making fun of the losing relevance that Congress leaders have. Tanmay tweeted that Congress leaders have resorted to waking up in the morning and trying to shame comedians for deleting a meme. Rohan, on the other hand, sent a tweet that sounded more like an answering machine message, asking members from political, religious or social groups to leave an outrage after the beep. HI. YOU'VE REACHED THE TWITTER ACCOUNT OF ME. IF YOU'RE FROM A POLITICAL, RELIGIOUS OR SOCIAL GROUP PLEASE LEAVE AN OUTRAGE AFTER THE BEEP — Rohan (@mojorojo) July 13, 2017 You actually hold some responsibility. Waking up in the morning and trying to shame some comedians for deleting a meme. Ispe utar gaye ho. — Tanmay Bhat (@thetanmay) July 13, 2017 PS: Will continue making jokes. And deleting if necessary. And making jokes again. And Apologizing if necessary. Don't care what you think. — Tanmay Bhat (@thetanmay) July 13, 2017 pic.twitter.com/MMG9E5zNQj — Tanmay Bhat (@thetanmay) July 13, 2017 AIB was in trouble not too long ago for their roast of Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor, which was criticized by some members of the public for being too offensive, even though a statutory warning was given prior to the start of the roast.
