In a shocking incident, Utsav Chakraborty, one of the AIB comedians has been accused of sending sexually explicit images and messages to a minor girl. He has been accused of sending unsolicited pictures of his genitals to women and girls. Utsav Chakraborty, the stand-up comedian has appeared in many of the videos of AIB.
The floodgates opened when one of the women accused him on Twitter saying that Chakraborty had sent images of his genitals. Soon it became a #MeToo ripple and multiple women started sharing their horrifying experiences who accused him of sending explicit, offensive pictures to their inbox and also asking nude images from them.
Here’s how the woman expressed her ordeal “I want everyone to know @Wootsaw is a piece of sh*t. He sent me a d**k pic, was creepy, then cried saying I’ll ruin his career if I tell others,” she wrote on Twitter. She continued that she had “told two of the most influential men in comedy in India” about the incident, but “nothing happened.”
Responding to the allegations Utsav Chakraborty said “this whole thing needs patience” and “incredible amount of context”.He denied some of the allegations and accepted that “getting nudes from a person” was an instant rush for him.
The comedy group, AIB, All India Bakchod apologized for this behaviour by stating “We are also aware that by extending safe working spaces and a collaborative environment to people like Utsav, we have contributed towards a toxic environment that can be scary and unsafe for women. And so we are sorry for any part we may have played in the tolerance or furthering of such behaviour”. AIB even announced that Chakraborty is no longer its member.
The Mumbai police extended their support to the first woman who had shared her experience, by tweeting “We have followed you. Request you to inbox your number. We will look into this.
