‪#‎AIBRoast‬ – How you were forced to watch something you did not want…

So a lot of talks are going on about #AIBRoast.

Apparently ‪#‎AIBRoast‬ offended some of you to the extent that you want a ban. It seems you were forced into watching something very offensive. Fair enough.

Seemingly “not watching it” was not an option you guys had. So let me understand how you could have ended up watching which so offended some people.

Theory 1 : People came to your house, dragged you out of your homes & forced you to go the venue and watch the show you did not want to watch.They held a gun to your head and threatened you with all kinds of vile threats, if you did not watch it.

Truth 1 : You had to buy tickets to enter the show. Remember you had to go somewhere (online or offline), pay your hard earned money and buy tickets to enter the show. No one was coming to your home and giving you free tickets, and even if they were, no one was dragging you out of your home to watch it.

Theory 2: It was up on internet and was auto-playing itself which was forcing you to watch it and there was no stop/close button and neither was it allowing you to shut your computer, forcing you to watch it. The video took control of your senses, your motor actions, preventing you from switching it off or from getting up, so you did not watch it.

Truth 2: The video was up on Youtube. It was not on auto play mode. You had to search for it, click it and then play it. You could close it anytime you felt it offended your sensibilities. The video had no control over you BUT RATHER YOU CONTROLLED IT.

So yes, IF IT OFFENDED YOU, you always have a simple option of choosing not to watch it. Asking for a ban or justifying it, just speaks volumes of your stupid and regressive mind. Nothing else.

Also, next time, do note the difference between a “roast” and a “shayari” program. Apparently some of you did not realise that a roast is meant to be offensive.

REMEMBER : IT IS YOUR FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT AND YOUR BIRTHRIGHT NOT TO WATCH/READ WHAT OFFENDS YOU. IT IS HOWEVER NOT YOUR FUNDAMENTAL OR BIRTHRIGHT TO ASK FOR A BAN OF IT.

Or god knows, some day someone will feel offended by your very existence and ask for a ban of you, and am sure there will be some stupid archaic law which will allow them to do that too.
