Comedian Raju Srivastava is in no mood to laugh or spread waves of laughter as he is pretty upset with people who are using his picture in political memes. This is not the first time Raju’s picture has been used in such memes. Last year too, the comedian expressed that he is not at all amused to see such things.
In Oct 2017, the comedian even filed a complaint against the unknown imposter under Section 500 of IPC (punishment for defamation) at Oshiwara, Mumbai. He complained that his image is shared in disrespectful posts which are going viral.
And now again, his picture is being used in Anti PM Modi memes which are making Raju Srivastava furious.
In an interview to Mid-Day, Raju Srivastava said, “Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but do not use my name. When the joke is not mine, why should I take the blame for it?” He added that the jokes circulated with his picture were in bad taste. “The jokes should be clean and should not target someone. Social media is a great platform to spread the good word. Why use it to spread negativity? And don’t use my name or photo for the same.”
