    'Yehi soch kar delete kiya kyuki...': Rohan Joshi removes his insensitive remark on Raju Srivastava after severe backlash

    While the nation is mourning the loss of Raju Srivastava , stand-up comedian Rohan Joshi has irked the public with his insensitive remark about the late comedian. However, after being massively trolled, he deleted his remark and issued a clarification on the same. He realized that the day is not right for venting out his personal feelings. “Yehi soch kar delete kiya kyuki after a minute of anger I realised today is not about my personal feelings. Sorry if it hurt and thanks for the perspective (sic),” he wrote.

    Reacting to comedian Atul Khatri’s tribute to Raju on social media, Rohan had called Raju’s death ‘good riddance’. “We haven’t lost a thing. Whether it was Karma whether it was the roast or any comic in the news. Raju Srivastav took every opportunity he ever got to sh*t on newer comics, especially after the new wave of stand-up started. He went on every f*ckall news channel every time he was invited to go sh*t on an upcoming art form and call it offensive just because he couldn’t understand it and new stars were rising. He might have told a few good jokes but he understood nothing about the spirit of comedy or defending someone’s right to say something even if you don’t agree. F*ck him and good riddance,” he wrote.

    Following this, netizens called out Rohan Joshi for being so insensitive. “Rohan joshi has deleted the pathetic comment after getting bashed by people. He’s justified saying he was angry and it’s not time for his “personal feelings”. His Personal feelings filled with toxic hatred & venom. No wonder, he calls other hate mongers & intolerant,” one of the users wrote. Another commented, “I am pretty much sure @thetanmay would never react in such way when Sunil Pal will die like Rohan Joshi did on death of Raju Srivastava. Personal Grudges aside, someone had died dude. I was completely shocked to see that comment by Rohan, have nothing more to say.”

    Anupam Kher’s son Sikander Kher also reposted Rohan’s remark and slammed him. “There are always people that will not be the ideal way we think they should be. But, that’s life and we as humans and humanity should deal with it for our own health and happiness (in my opinion).” He continued, “But, after reading this about someone who’s passed away too soon, I am just sad to see that a young man who might be funny and witty, probably lacks a huge dose of humanity. #unfortunate #disheartening and very very very #uncool. Ps: took a lot for me to be this polite,” he wrote.

    Meanwhile, Raju Srivastava passed away on Wednesday at the age of 58 at AIIMS Delhi. He suffered a cardiac arrest last month after he was admitted to the hospital. He was undergoing treatment but unfortunately died after being on the ventilator for over 40 days.
