The famous poet and politician, Kumar Vishwas slammed Vidushi Swaroop on Twitter. He tweeted in Hindi saying,
In fact, this is not only absurd but also inhuman. This insensitive joke is just a glimpse of today’s so-called stand-up presentations that constantly make fun of vulgar and cultural values. Fortunately, no male presenter did this cheap thing, otherwise, all the commissions would have woken up. Shame on those who laughed.”
दरअसल ये बेहूदा ही नहीं अमानवीय और क्रूर भी है। यह असंवेदनशील मज़ाक़ आजकल की निरंतर अश्लील व संस्कारों की मज़ाक़ उड़ाती तथाकथित स्टैंड-अप प्रस्तुतियों की ही झलक भर है। ग़नीमत है कि यह घटियापन किसी पुरुष प्रस्तुतकर्ता ने नहीं किया अन्यथा सारे आयोग जाग जाते।हंसने वालों भी पर लानत👎 https://t.co/bKgtf183sO
