Vivek Agnihotri, a renowned filmmaker, recently slammed a comedian for making jokes about the second wave of Covid-19 in a viral video. The video, which was shared on social media, has been widely criticized by many people, including Agnihotri.
In the video, the comedian is seen making light of the current situation in India, where the second wave of Covid-19 has caused a massive surge in cases and deaths. The comedian is seen making jokes about the lack of oxygen, the shortage of hospital beds, and the rising death toll.
Agnihotri took to Twitter to express his outrage at the comedian’s jokes. He wrote, “This is not funny. This is not a joke. This is a tragedy. We are in the middle of a pandemic and people are dying. Making jokes about it is not only insensitive but also irresponsible. We need to be more responsible and sensitive in our words and actions.”
The filmmaker’s tweet has been widely shared and appreciated by many people. Many have praised him for speaking out against the comedian’s insensitive jokes.
The comedian, however, has not yet responded to Agnihotri’s criticism. It remains to be seen if he will apologize for his insensitive jokes or continue to make light of the situation.

In such a situation, it is important for people to be more responsible and sensitive in their words and actions. Making jokes about the pandemic is not only insensitive but also irresponsible. It is important to remember that this is a tragedy and not a joke.
It is heartening to see people like Vivek Agnihotri speaking out against such insensitive jokes. His criticism of the comedian is a reminder that we need to be more responsible and sensitive in our words and actions. We need to remember that this is a tragedy and not a joke.
