New Delhi: Comedian Tanmay Bhat of All India Bakchod (AIB), who tweeted out to social networking app Snapchat asking to be ‘paid’ after his insulting video went viral, first tweeted a sarcastic ‘Wow’ to NewsX’s ‘Tanmay Bhat wants cash for insult, asks Snapchat to pay him after video goes viral’ story, and later deleted the tweet.
Please pay me @Snapchat

When accessed later, the tweet was deleted.
Tanmay had earlier shared a video on his official Facebook page titled, “Sachin vs Lata Civil War (I make such nonsense on my Snapchat - follow me there - ID: Thetanmay) (Also I obviously love Lata and Sachin, just having some fun).”
The video has recieved a lot of flak from fans of Lata Mangeshkar and Sachin Tendulkar and other political parties who have said that the AIB comedian has crossed the line and that he should apologise.
MNS also went ahead and filed an FIR against Tanmay in the case.
