Mumbai-Based Comedian Irks Late Sushant Singh Rajput's Fans As He Jokes About Mental Health And Media Coverage; Comedian Tenders Apology
A comedian named Daniel Fernandez seems to have ticked off late Sushant Singh Rajput's fans in a wrong way with his current stand-up act. In a viral video of his act, Daniel seems to have made fun of India's obsession with Rhea Chakraborty's arrest post Sushant Singh Rajput death and mental health. This has irked many fans of Sushant Singh Rajput who have been demanding justice for the late actor since his demise. The act has paved way to many negative comments and social media threats, leading to Daniel extending an apology for his act.

Some of the social media users even wished that Daniel faces the same 'anguish' Sushant's family suffered. A fan of SSR wrote, "The worst thing you could do as a stand-up comedian is making jokes on a tragedy. Dislike and mass report this video for making jokes on Sushant Singh Rajput death." Another one wrote, "This video is a slap on humanity. Extremely derogatory and painful for all of us. How come a comedian make fun of a dead man like this?@itsSSR he never deserved this Are we Human?"

He mentioned that as a comedian, his aim is to make people laugh but 'sometimes in that endeavour it is possible that I might evoke an unfavorable response." He also accepted that he made a factual error when he used the word 'acquitted' while talking about Rhea Chakraborty. Check out tweets and his post below:
