US President Donald Trump is on a two-day official go to to India and actor-comedian Vir Das after listening to his speech, shared a couple of tweets, which did not go down effectively with netizens they usually demanded him to be put behind the bars. Post this, Vir reacted with a hard-hitting reply.

Just a few hours in the past, Vir tweeted, “Donald Trump. What a gift”, “Makes sense that Trump is visiting India. An orange man belongs in a saffron land” and “Today was a great day. Donald Trump met the Che Villa and Swami Veivakamundununmundununduooo smiled down upon them Slightly smiling face #TrumpIndiaVisit”. 

Post the actor’s tweets, one consumer commented, “India needs to get rid of these pseudo-secular idiots like @thevirdas, these guys instigate the poor fellows sitting in the AC room and now showing all these dramas. Once these kinds of guys are behind the jail, things will fall in place.” To this, Vir requested for a proof as to why he must be put behind the bars and tweeted, “You wanna put me in jail? That’s a pretty serious request. For what sir?”

Here’s Vir Das’s tweet:

Another consumer commented on Vir’s tweet and wrote, “Peaceful disputes are maintained when men sincerely believe that they are morally, logically correct about the issues at hand. It is when neither side is really certain that wars are instigated, your tweet is adding the fuel to the uncertainty. Pass the message to be calm.” To this, the actor-comedian replied, “My tweet was about Donald Trump’s name. The next time you call for me or any artist to be jailed, make damned sure you have good reason to. Either unfollow me or control your fragile insecure flimsy chest-beating false Indian male ego and move on.”

One of the followers requested Vir to not reply to tweets during which folks say baseless issues. To this, the actor replied, “Respectfully. Ignoring is easy. Because I have a large supportive following and I’m privileged. I’m not the only one being threatened. Women, younger artists, many people have it way worse. It’s on us, the established, to set a culture of not being afraid & calling this shit out,” learn Vir’s tweet.
