Has 'AIB' got itself 'Knocked Out'?
The popular online comedy portal, AIB (All India Bak***) a band of comedians who specialise in adult humor has been recently hit with one controversy against another. Reason of the whole fiasco is their recently launched 'Adult Programme' on Youth called 'AIB Roast Knockout'. The event featured some of the most popular faces of Bollywood. To name a few was Deepika, Sonakshi, Alia etc.
While the AIB team hosted the event on their own, Bollywood's ace filmmaker Karan Johar took the hot seat and popular actors Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor chose to sit on the 'Roast' seat. What happened next were the series of non stop adult jokes, toiler humor etc etc. Well the show went viral and became an immediate success but the easy success doesn't come without trouble. And soon after the videos were hit viral, they were taken down from YouTube.

While the show received massive response from its target audience, it irked many also. The show became a reason of backlash from Maharashtra Government to various political leaders who constantly opposed the makers and the idea of running this event. Soon the AIB team found itself in a huge mess and took down the online event and instead apologised to people.

Now three questions arise here...which we would like to ask to AIB team.

Q1. The AIB team fairly knows the taste of people and what kind of response the adult shows get. They are mostly censored on TV and online too. Despite knowing this, why couldn't they pay attention to this matter before putting up videos? Did they genuinely forgot about it or it was a desperate attempt to get publicity?

Q2. The uncensored versions of episodes are not easily available. Sometimes the content makers use a 'subscription' option to those who only agree to watch such content but here the event was made available to everyone. So if they had to take down the video in a few days, why put up those? If they had really taken all the necessary licenses and guidelines to hold the event, what was the need to take it down?

Q3. Since the video has been taken down, the AIB has been constantly apologizing to communities. So what is the use of people standing by them if they start apologizing to everyone for hurting their sentiments? If they don't believe and stand by themselves, how could they expect others to do the same?

Lastly, at the end AIB should learn a lesson from this whole fiasco to be careful and they should focus on each and every detail of their content if they want to make it easily accessible to everyone. There is no doubt that there is some serious talent prevailing in their minds. But that talent certainly gets a hit if its being targeted by endless controversies. We can't blame!
