In a recent turn of events, comedian Kunal Kamra has been banned from flying with IndiGo and Air India for a period of six months owing to a video of him allegedly confronting a TV journalist went viral on social media.
The clip, that was shared by Kamra himself showed how the comedian met a journalist on a flight and confronting the latter who would go on to ignore him.
Following that Kamra can be seen trying to provoke the journalist in order to get a few words out of him and even mocking him continuously, even then the news anchor did not speak.
This video went viral almost immediately where some would favor Kamra's actions mentioning how it was much needed while some would express how they went overboard with the incessant questions.
Now, IndiGo has tweeted saying that Kamra has been suspended for a period of six months, 'as his conduct onboard was unacceptable behaviour.'
IndiGo also added, "Hereby, we wish to advise our passengers to refrain from indulging in personal slander whilst onboard, as this can potentially compromise the safety of fellow passengers."
Kamra went on to sarcastically respond, 'Thank you Indigo a six month suspension is honestly very kind of you..."
AirIndia also tweeted, "#FlyAI: In view of the incident onboard @IndiGo6E, Air India wishes to inform that conduct of Person concerned is unacceptable.With a view to discourage such behavior onboard flts, Mr Kunal Kamra is suspended from flying on any Air India fly until further notice. @HardeepSPuri.
