Desis Call Out Comedian Samay Raina For His Tasteless Joke On Abortion

The comedy space in the country has evolved a lot over the years. From people body-shaming others in the name of humor to calling the evils of society in a rather humorous and ‘punny’ way, we sure have come a long way.

Women have also started taking the reins of the space that was ideally dominated by men and artists are taking a dig at controversial topics in the name of dark humor. But how far can one go when it comes to touching sensitive issues like rape, abortion, and homophobia among others?

We ask this question after coming across a comedian’s tweet that is currently being massively criticized for being in bad taste and not funny.

Indian stand-up comedian Samay Raina took to Twitter to probably joke about the United States’ landmark judgment that overturned abortion as a constitutional right in the country. He tweeted:

Raina being cynical and joking about a woman’s right to make decisions about her body is so 70s. And definitely not funny according to scores of diverse people online.
