Stand Up comic shows how not to react to criticism on social media

An Indian standup comic, Sanjay Rajoura, who goes by the Twitter handle “@urbantucchha” today resorted to name calling and threats to another Twitter user who did not agree with his views on the Supreme Court’s order of banning firecracker sale in Delhi this Diwali. Rajoura is a part of the group Aisi Taisi Democracy, which claims to be into stand-up comedy on social issues. Other members of this group are Indian Ocean’s bassist and vocalist Rahul Ram and lyricist/comedian Varun Grover. The handle of this group, had tweeted the below, ascribing it to Rajoura:

Twitter user @GappistanRadio, quoting this tweet said that despite Rajoura’s dislike for firecrackers and Chetan Bhagat’s books, he couldn’t quite forcibly stop anyone from buying either. However, this triggered Rajoura who took to Twitter to threaten Gappistan Radio, by using the usual Indian Liberal (his bio also says he’s a feminist) weapon of personal attacks and going after livelihood of an individual they disagree with. While he has deleted these tweets, here are the screenshots where he claims how he knows where Gappistan Radio lives and works, and his boss may be someone whom Rajoura knows, so “he should be careful”.

Ironically, his own tweets from the archives speak on how abusive Modi fans are and how he would straighten them up if he ever gets his hands on them.

Twitter was quick to react to the deleted tweets.

Interestingly, Rajoura is being followed by various politicians and journalists.

This is not the first time the so-called champions of free speech have made personal attacks and gone after employment of people they don’t agree with. OpIndia co-founder @Bhak_sala was also hounded by abusive troll masquerading as journalist Swati Chaturvedi. Even author Shuchi Kalra was attacked by pseudo liberals when she showed her anger towards terrorists who had killed our soldiers.

It is shocking how a little bit of criticism riles up these snowflakes and quickly move from abusing and threatening someone to playing victim.
