Twitterati Are Slamming Kunal Kamra For Barging Into Arnab Goswami’s Space



Host of a political-comedy podcast and popular stand up comedian, Kunal Kamra is well known for his fearless and sharp-witted material.

He has had shows cancelled earlier because of his political comments. Today, all across twitter, there is a demand to put him on a no-fly list.

Wondering what he did this time to incur such a response? Continue reading to find out.

Released on Twitter , this is Kunal’s statement, regarding the events that occurred in an Indigo flight today which involved famous journalist and majority owner of RepublicTV, Mr. Arnab Goswami.

“Today I met Arnab Goswami in a flight to Lucknow (6E5317), and politely asked him to have a conversation. At first, he pretended to be on a phone call. I waited for his so called phone call to get over. Seatbelt signs were off at this time. I gave him a monologue about what I felt about his ‘journalism’. He refused to answer any questions, he called me ‘mentally unstable’.

The stewardess asked me to take my seat as the seatbelt signs had just come on.
Post take off, when the seatbelt signs were off again, I approached him again and asked him if I could have his attention.

He said he is watching something, and he doesn’t want to talk. So then I did exactly what Republic TV journalists do to people in their private/public spaces and I don’t regret it. I am not sorry for it.

The moment the stewardess asked me to move, I went back to my seat in 20 seconds. I apologised to each member personally and to both the pilots, by staying back till the end, for any inconvenience that I might have caused during the flight.

I don’t think I did anything wrong/criminal. Don’t let this be about my bravado. Let us all take a moment and fondly remember a smiling Rohit Vemula.

I do apologise to every passenger except one.”

Kunal also shared a video of Arnab in the flight, where Kunal can be seen trying to elicit a response from Arnab but Arnab not choosing to reply back.

Here are a few tweets that better express, how the citizens felt after watching the video.
