While people have been blowing Tanmay Bhat’s video out of proportion and getting offended yet again, we have a real reason for people to take offence.
Sunil Pal’s interview with TV 9. He single handedly disses comedians in India, women who he says, ‘flirt back with said comedians happily’ and the LGBTQ community. I mean it’s one thing to give your opinions on the matter but quite another to talk so recklessly, without any first hand information.
So while these kind of people exist, who may not insult your ‘Icons’, but manage to offend communities in general, with comments that can only be classified as ill-informed and insensitive, we should be taking offense.
But for the right things.
Here’s what Twitter had to say about Sunil Pal’s interview
Sunil Pal said ‘Comedy mein audience gay aur lesbian hote hai. Samaj ko kharab karna unka kaam hi hai’
Guys. This needs outrage.
Wow. No one will outrage on this I guess. https://t.co/rhfQvsWB10

Don’t know what’s worse – this guy criticising homosexuals, or the anchor who emphatically agrees https://t.co/Mg1ZoQ02Oi

Sunil Pal was perfectly happy performing for our Ganda Samaaj at my Comedy Festival. Must have been torture for him.https://t.co/sCgByx5itP
