Comedian and YouTuber Utsav Chakraborty has been accused of sending sexually explicit messages to women, including minors, on social media. It started as a Twitter thread about a group of Indian men’s obscene behaviour on-board a cruise, which Chakraborty condemned. A Twitter user, then, got on to the thread to talk about the worst-kept secret in the Indian comedy circuit – the sexual abuse faced by women at the hands of the male comics.

She started a thread condemning Utsav Chakraborty’s sexual misconduct with women, including minor girls. He has been accused of asking minors to send ‘nudes’.

Hours after the allegations, Utsav Chakraborty tweeted saying “the whole thing needs a lot of patience and an incredible amount of context.”

“Saw this on my timeline, interesting for you to comment on how Indian men harass women. Irony is still alive and thriving. Did they send unsolicited dick picks or that’s safely only your territory? Or like cry after saying you’ll ruin their career if you tell others? Or will they also blame that on the girls? The harassment they got that is. Hey Utsav. How many girls have you harassed you vile man. These messages are for a young girl I know.”
