Comedian Atul Khatri recently took to Twitter to comment about the crisis in Afghanistan, and a lot of users on Twitter pointed out how it was in bad taste.


Afghanistan has been taken over by terrorist organisation Taliban, and is in a state of crisis ever since President Ashraf Ghani fled the country along with some top diplomats. As most of the citizens, especially women, children and human rights activists face a severe threat to their survival, the entire world is shocked to see the downfall of the country.

Amid this, comedian Atul Khatri tweeted "Af-gone-istan" creating an insensitive pun out of the situation. Users on Twitter called him out for this and have asked him to delete the tweet. Check it out here:
