Stand-up comedian and popular Youtuber Utsav Chakraborty has been accused of sending sexually explicit messages to women which also includes minors. Utsav Chakraborty is a popular name in the web comedy industry and has featured in number of All India Bakchod (AIB) videos.

This all started after the comedian posted a message condemning about an incident involving group of Indian men who behaved improperly on an Australian cruise ship.

 

One of the user Mahima Kukreja revealed her experience and wrote, ‘’I want everyone to know @Wootsaw is a piece of shit. He sent me a dick pic, was creepy, then cried saying I’ll ruin his career if I tell others. I told two of the most influential men in comedy in India. Nothing happened. Let me tell you what else he has done with others’’.

After this tweet, Mahima asked other girls to come out and share their ugly experience with him and started sharing screenshots of conversations of other women with Utsav.

Mahima also accused All India Bakchod (AIB) of knowing the matter and not doing anything about it. She wrote, ‘’AIB knew. I don’t know if all them knew but the person who runs it knew. I told him. AIB still gave him work. You should know this’’.

However, Utsav denied all the accusations and wrote, ‘I don’t know what to say here and fight back (or even if I should). Literally everyone I Know has turned against me and I don’t blame them for that. But the whole thing is far more complicated that it appears. I am not discrediting anyone. It’s not my place. But this whole thing needs a lot of patience. And an incredible amount of context. Which I will give. Hopefully sooner than later’’.

Following this tweet, Utsav shared series of tweets defending his case.

All India Bakchod (AIB) issued a statement on Thursday regarding the controversy and cleared the air that Utsav was never the head writer in their organisation and is not associated with AIB since fall of 2016.
