Mumbai: Kunal Kamra, well known, so-called Stand-up comedian on Wednesday had shared a series of tweets concerning the Supreme Court in his reaction to interim bail granted to Republic TV’s editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami by the SC in the 2018 abetment to suicide case.

The Attorney General has said that the tweets by Kamra are ‘not only in bad taste but also clearly cross the line between humour and contempt of the Court’.

Kamra on Wednesday had shared a series of tweets concerning the top court in his reaction to interim bail granted to Republic TV’s editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami by the SC in the 2018 abetment to suicide case. The tweets by Kamra termed to be constituting criminal contempt of court by the AG include, “Honour has left the building (Supreme Court) long back and “The Supreme Court of this Country is the most Supreme joke of this country”.

One can’t speak rotten words against anyone or any law of the country under the safe shade of ‘Joke’ and ‘Comedy’.

Spreading negativity and hate speech and giving it the name of the joke is the most hypocritic thing one can do.

In his letter, the AG has also slammed Kamra’s tweet depicting the SC building in saffron colour and said that the tweet amounts to gross insinuation against the entirety of the Supreme Court, undermining its independence.

Censuring Kamra’s tweets, the AG said,
“I find that today people believe that they can boldly and brazenly condemn the Supreme Court of India and its judges by exercising what they believe is their freedom of speech.”
