All India Bakchod (AIB) has asked its co-founder Tanmay Bhat to step down over the sexual allegations that were levelled against comedians Utsav Chakraborty and Gursimran Khamba. Bhat had in a tweet said that he had confronted Utsav, who he said had sent a picture of his private parts by accident to a girl. The latter called up the victim to apologise but ended up harassing her even more.
AIB has released a statement in which they apologised for the whole incident, saying they cannot overlook Bhat’s role in the matter and he will be stepping down from his association with the company until further notice. The statement also spoke about the allegations against Gursimran that have surfaced on social media.
AIB had earlier apologised for the way things were handled where their former employee Utsav Chakraborty was concerned, stating that they should have disassociated themselves from him when the allegations started.
Following the release of the statement on Bhat, AIB’s post was swamped with reactions from Twitter users. Check the tweets out:
Many are wondering if it is enough for Tanmay to just step down from his post until further notice.
