Mumbai Metro: Stand-up comic Vir Das is upset people are making jokes on him while exposing his hypocrisy

Irony just protested against an infrastructure project, got it binned and laughed at its own joke.

Standup comic Vir Das is upset. Because people are making jokes on him. And this is not a joke. On Wednesday, Das took a Eurostar, a high international train, from Brussels to London and shared an image on Twitter.

His tweet hailing public transport like high-speed international train generated curiosity. Twitterati dug out his old tweets where he had opposed felling of trees for the construction of metro car shed in Aarey in Mumbai.

Netizens called him a hypocrite for having different standards for infrastructure projects.

And as some netizens correctly predicted, he has blamed the omnipresent ‘IT cell’ for normal people pointing out his hypocrisy.

Leftist organisations, politicians and virtue signalling activists had gone berserk after the authorities cut trees at the proposed site of the Aarey Colony for the Mumbai Metro car shed project in October this year. The vain protests and virtue signalling by people who never pause to think about the environment before using gas-guzzling SUVs, air conditioning and other personal luxuries have been called out on Twitter.
