Twitter rips apart comedian who brazened it out after asking stupid questions

Vir Das is a stand-up comedian who now a days seems to have started doubling up as a policy and economic watchdog on Twitter.

On 30th September the comedian put out a tweet questioning the Modi government about, where was the taxpayer’s money going when it came to basic governance issues:

It was certainly heartening to see that Vir Das had chosen to take interest in the nation’s affairs and exercise his democratic right to question the government.

A few days later a twitter user named @OnlyNakedTruth saw the tweets of Vir Das and decided to educate him about the performance of his government, which many felt Vir Das would have appreciated as he obviously looked very concerned about the nation in his tweet:

He in his subsequent tweets educated Vir Das about the Modi government’s good performance in improving the road, sanitation and railway infrastructure of the country. He also made Vir Das aware about the improvement in the Nation’s internal security [1][2] under the Modi government.

He later also commented about Vir Das’s less than average knowledge of the Nation’s current affairs:

It might have been expected, that any person in Vir Das’s position would have been very happy to know that the country is in a much better shape than what they thought and might have even felt humbled that a citizen had taken time out of his busy schedule to explain that to him.

Or just in case he thought the responses were not apt, he could have pointed out flaws in them, in a witty style, after all he’s a comedian!

But rather than responding in the aforementioned manners, Vir Das decided to come up with an extremely condescending response:

Such a response by Vir Das might give out a feeling that he was least interested in the affairs of the nation and the only purpose of his tweet was to either peddle his agenda or seek validation from the left-liberal nexus, which welcomes mindless bashing of anything Modi.

His dismissive response wasn’t taken kindly by many twitter users who decided to rip his response apart:

Even @OnlyNakedTruth decided to respond:

Later when Vir Das was obviously getting slammed left and right he decided to come out and in a veiled dig, dismissed his critics as trolls:

Such a response too is fairly common among a section of the society who routinely dismiss people as trolls when they have been exposed or don’t have any meaningful response in a perfectly normal debate.
