"Get him arrested right away. or at least make him apologize. You can't get away with such things every time. If you feel the slightest of shame on what you have said then you should already have come out with an unconditional apology. @RandeepHooda," a user tweeted.

Another referred to Randeep's joke and wrote, "…shows how easily 1 can make fun of dalit man/women anywhere. society is being formed one way for dalits and it will continue to do so. Atrocities doesn't help at all."

There has been no statement from Randeep Hooda.

Earlier in May, #ArrestMunmunDutta was trending after the Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah actor used a casteist slur in a video. Since then two cases have been registered against the actor under the Scheduled Castes and Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.
