After Navjot Singh Sidhu faced backlash for his comments on the Pulwama attack, now it was Kapil Sharma’s turn to face brickbats from the netizens. After #BoycottKapilSharmaShow, #BoycottSidhu, and #UnsubscibeSonyTV the latest hashtag to trend on social media is #BoycottKapilSharma. The hashtag started trending on social media right after Kapil commented that sacking Sidhu from the show is not the solution.
Kapil was speaking at a drug-free India at an Art of Living event and said about the Pulwama attack and Sidhu’s sacking, “These are very small things, or can also be a part of propaganda. I feel banning someone or sacking Navjot Singh Sidhu from the show (The Kapil Sharma Show) is not the solution. We need to look for a permanent solution.” He supported the government’s decision on the Pulwama attack and had said, “We are with the government but still we need a permanent solution. The cowardly act in Pulwama that killed our soldiers shouldn't be forgotten and the culprits should be punished.”
However, his comments did not go down well with the netizens and the Twitterati ended up bashing him left, right and centre. Take a look at some of the comments by the Twitterati below.
