A week earlier, Carry Minati became the only Indian YouTuber to set a new record for the most-liked video in the least amount of time. The video was in direct response to TikToker Amir Siddiqui’s rant against YouTube content creators. The roast spread like wildfire and within hours Carry Minati was trending #1 on Twitter. In an escalated drama, YouTube has now deleted the viral post terming violation of its cyberbullying policy.
The 22-year-old YouTuber has a flair for posting roast videos and enjoys a massive online fanbase. Though the video was praised by fellow content creators like Ashish Chinchlani, Bhuvan Bam, and Harsh Beniwal, TikTokers accused the YouTuber of spreading hate and bullying.
Fans favoring Carry Minati have since created a meme fest on all social media sites. The video’s strong language has irked members of the LGBTQI community bringing the much-needed conversation of using derogatory comments against a community for humor.
YouTube’s action has created a war between TikTokers and YouTubers. Hashtags like #JusticeForCarry #BanTikTokIndia has been trending since morning. Fans of the latter are standing in solidarity while others opposing it feel the decision was justified on YouTube’s part. Actor Himash Kohli and Ashish Chinchlani have also lent their support to Carry Minati.
I know people, this is very disappointing and a shocker.#justiceforcarry
