Recently, Vir issued a statement clarifying that his comments weren’t intended to insult the country. The comedian had uploaded a video on YouTube, titled “I come from two Indias”, which was a part of his recent performance in Washington DC. In the video, he spoke about the most topical issues India is facing, from its battle against COVID-19, incidences of rapes, a crackdown against comedians, to farmers’ protests. Soon after the video was released online, social media users accused him of insulting India on the global stage. And at least two police complaints were filed against him.
