It isn't new anymore how celebrities are called upon for making objectionable statements that go on to be of offence to a particular community in one way or another.
Recently, we saw how actors Munmun Dutta and Yuvika Chaudhary were called upon for calling 'bhangi' followed by which they had to issue apologies on the same.
And now, another celebrity is in question where actor Sambhavna Seth and her husband Avinash Dwivedi went on to find themselves in a fix. As known, Seth and Dwivedi keep creating satirical videos on social media for entertainment, one of their videos caught traction and didn't go down well with a particular community and we're highly offended by a video (uploaded on June 16th) and the words used in it.
After receiving hate in the comments, the couple pulled the video down and went on to issue an apology too. In the video, the couple said, "We had created a video on June 16 and we have now realised that the language used in that video belonged to the Adivasi community from Jharkhand. The community comprises more than 1 lakh people and many of their sentiments have been hurt. Our intention was just to make people laugh through our humorous video. It wasn't our intention to demean anyone or any community. We don't have a script, so, in the flow, we tend to speak inappropriate words and go wrong. We would want to apologise to all our subscribers, to the Adivasi and the non-Adivasi community because even we were hurt after reading the comments by the viewers."-
Adding further, Seth said, "We didn't realise that we made a mistake unless the people commented on Instagram and tagged us. We have taken down that video for your respect because we would never want to hurt any community. Our only intention is to spread love. We assure you we will never hurt any community here or anywhere in the world. With folded handed, we apologise to everyone. If at all again, we make a mistake, please let us know because it's important to know our mistakes."
