Once again, the entertainment group AIB (All India Bakchod) has gotten themselves into trouble with their explicit humour attempts on well-known personalities.

This time, the AIB posted an insulting picture of the Prime Minister on their social media handles. The Mumbai Police has lodged an FIR against the AIB on Friday.

According to the Cyber police that lodged the FIR, a social media user tagged the Mumbai Police on the ‘offensive’ post. The comedy group had posted a picture of Prime Minister ‘in a derogatory manner’.

AIB has deleted the controversial tweet as soon as it started getting heat from other social media users.

The tweet by the comedy group consisted of a picture that had the Prime Minister alongside his look-alike with Snapchat's dog filter. The caption read, 'Dog filter is lyf'. The group also posted the same picture on their Facebook group’s page with caption ‘Wanderlust’.

Their post immediately attracted a lot of heat from the users. The group took down the post as soon as the backlash turned fierce. Co-founder of AIB, Tanmay Bhat responded to the outrage tweeting, “ “so, so frustrated” (over a backlash on his post).

He also tweeted, “Congress leaders and BJP trolls both getting mad over a goddamn silly snapchat filter meme smh.”

Tanmay Bhat has been in trouble for posting such content online. Earlier he faced huge backlash for his parody video on Lata Mangeshkar and Sachin Tendulkar.
