While the controversy over The Viral Fever's (TVF) CEO being accused of sexual harassment still making headlines, another controversy was nipped in the bud on Tuesday.
An allegation had been levelled against All India Bakchod's (AIB) writer and comedian Rohan Joshi. A user on Reditt, a social news aggregation website, first alleged that she was groped by Joshi last year.
However, an hour later, the user clarified that the incident never happened and it was an attempt to 'expose schadenfreude in today's world.' The user also apologised and said that 'Joshi is a great guy'
