Kannada television host rather unnecessarily victimised over 'Bhoothaaraadhane' remark

A recent episode of a comedy show in a Kannada television channel, put the host in a precarious spot. Online trollers seem to be having a field day driving every person on any media platform to use restraint even for a casual remark. Srujan Lokesh, the host, who allegedly compared Karnataka's Tulu Nadu tradition of 'Bhoothaaraadhane' with a call centre. A seemingly informal remark was taken a little too far by online trollers forcing the host to apologise. Freedom of expression seems to have no place in today's digital age.
