Kenny Sebastian has maintained that the screenshots were fake
Comedian Kenny Sebastian has landed in hot waters after screenshots of him allegedly abusing people went viral. Once the screenshots went viral, #KennySebastianGetPregnant started trending online. In fact, a number of videos and images were shared online that showed obscene comments posted by a verified account with the handle kennethseb. A Twitter account Perpendicular shared one of the screenshots and it went viral.
However, Kenny Sebastian has addressed the situation, maintaining that the screenshots were fake. In addition, he stated that he would be approaching the Mumbai Police for further investigation into the matter.
He tweeted, “So some fake screenshots of me are circulating where I appear to be abusing people. These are manipulated cause I reported an account who was attacking me cause of my religion.I will be approaching the @MumbaiPolice to get this investigated. Please don’t pay heed to any of these (sic).”
However, people share the screenshots of the chat again in the comments section. Kenny had previously incited the wrath of netizens when he expressed his views on the TikTok ban on July 1. He had tweeted, “Tik tok situation: People forget that if they can do it to someone else they can do it to you. Also applies to arrests, internet access, rights as a citizen & yeah banning something on the App Store. Feeling apathy cause it doesn’t affect you directly is prehistoric behaviour (sic).”
Ever since the screenshots came out, people have also been tagging the Twitter account of the National Commission for Women India in the comments section. They have responded to it saying that further investigations will be done.
