AIB's Narendra Modi meme leads to an FIR, comedians 'revolt', Twitter trolls

Tanmay Bhat, co-founder of All India Bakchod, defends AIB's actions after a meme on Narendra Modi with Snapchat's dog filter was reported to Mumbai Police.

All India Bakchod is known to be quite the notorious lot. The India-based comedy group co-founded by Tanmay Bhat has been the centre of several controversies over the years, be it their uncensored roast ‘AIB Knockout’ or Bhat’s imitation of cricketer Sachin Tendulkar and playback singer Lata Mangeshkar. This time, AIB is on the ropes and coincidentally it is Snapchat related.

On Wednesday, the official Twitter handle of AIB had tweeted a meme about Prime Minister Narendra Modi using the Snapchat dog filter, which was later removed. The seemingly harmless post invited a lot of backlash from Twitterati. One user, Reetesh Maheshwari, tweeted at Mumbai Police, reporting the incident as an “obnoxious” prank pulled at PM Modi which must follow legal proceedings.

The Narendra Modi meme faced heavy condemnation across Twitter where people referred to the comedy group as “sick” and having a “cheap mindset”. One user tweeted, “Just imagine Sir what he would be doing to his mom & sisters at home,if this is his level of perversion.” What perversion? It’s not as though using a Snapchat filter of a dog is derogatory in any manner.

Some others claimed that it was AIB’s desperate attempt to become more popular by riding on the back of a controversy.

But, then again, Tanmay Bhat should have taken into account the fact that humour has no place in this country. Anyway, the meme was taken down later, which, in itself shows that AIB doesn’t stand by it anymore but, a troll must troll.

After the meme was brought to the notice of Mumbai Police, Tanmay took to Twitter to vent his frustration, over the lack of rational reasoning, in a series of tweets.

UPDATE: As per NDTV, a complaint has been registered at the Mumbai Police Cyber Cell against Tanmay Bhat as the controversy continued to rise.  Mumbai Police and Tanmay have yet to confirm whether or not the reports of an FIR are true.

After the controversy broke, while many blasted the comedian, several others backed Tanmay, upholding a citizen’s freedom of speech:
