I’d like to start by letting you know that I’m not in support of the comedians who have been accused of sexism and misogyny. But I’d like to point out that these are posts from 5-6 years back.
The one with Rohan’s aids comment is a joke. Clearly, we all sit in the comfort of convenience, and clap and make such jokes viral, which is why they become trends. (“yo mom” jokes for example).
I refuse to even refer to #AIB dudes and their male bro-hood as woke. I've seen that interview where they all were there with my girl @awryaditi and it was plain for a blind person to see how MCP these pos are…

We have to know what’s serious and what’s not. Comedy sketches in the country, when edgy, become famous and go viral because they resonate with how most people think.
@AllIndiaBakchod blocked me from their Facebook account a year back. Why? Because I sent them this image:
Its pity that such 'social media influencers' are spreading the wrong message and are indeed a shame to society! #AIB #AIBalatkaris #AIBUtsav pic.twitter.com/o6RUOaP3sy

However, these jokes don’t necessarily indicate the thought process of these comedians. Jokes are not always one’s personal and moral beliefs. Jokes are not a symbol of one’s ideals.

Yes, Tanmay Bhatt is wrong in giving an opportunity to Utsav Chakraborty, in spite of knowing that there were sexual allegations against him. However, it’s not right to pick up posts he randomly tweeted few years ago, because clearly he’s making an adult humour, and it deserves discretion. Our discretion.
These @AllIndiaBakchod guys hv same kinda mentality.This @thetanmay yells nd cries against Raksha bandhan calling it anti women nd then these guys do these kinda pro women tweets. @Wootsaw is the most explicit version of this pro women #AIB ?#UtsavChakraborty @AGirlOfHerWords pic.twitter.com/Eq27Qct91u

This is my opinion and I’m open to other views as well.
