Another user tweeted, “This is so sick. Not a fan of any kind of standup comedy. But people should just stand and walk out of the place. Would serve him right! But then all are complicit.”

“It took me while to understand this, & I realised that We are still living in such a feeble society. How casteist, misogynistic & sexist slur was that. @RandeepHooda .
