Modi trolled AIB members snapchat filter. For the unversed, AIB created a meme like they have been doing for a very long time (like they morphed PC’s pictures poking fun at her attire). This time they committed an “offence” by posting an image of a Modi look-alike at a railway station but they morphed it to add the most popular snapchat filter to it – of a dog. The meme was seen as a dig at the Modi’s foreign tours and received backlash with strong reactions. So much so, that after a complaint AIB has been charged with defamation under the IT Act whose punishment is up to three years of imprisonment apart from a fine of Rs 5 lakh. A lot of people were offended by a meme in this case and that it failed at its attempt of poking fun, clearly, it was taken down soon after, right? Ideally, the discussion should have ended there but it didn’t. And just to remind you again, the man was PM Modi’s look-alike.
And this brings us to a bigger question – can jokes only be aimed at poor people, who don’t really raise their voice against it because they have other serious problems to deal with? Switch on the TV and see the kind of comedy they do and we laugh at. From making men dressed up as women to poke fun at them to trolling the poor from the audience and mocking them, all go around on TV. Celebrities are trolled every other day, people abuse them too. Many have quit Twitter in the wake of the same. Swara Bhaskar once said that she also wanted to quit Twitter after people threatened her to take her life.AIB also ended up in a legal mess when their infamous roast show. Also, for trolling Lata Mangeshkar and Sachin Tendulkar using snapchat filters. And now again, they have ended up being in hot water. So, is it time to set guidelines of what kind of jokes can be made? Is it really the time to go bizarre?
