Sambhavana Seth and her husband issue an apology for the Adivasi community
We all saw how Sambhawna Seth got herself into a pickle when she uploaded a video on her social media handle. She and her husband Avinash Dwivedi keep creating satirical videos to entertain the audience and were not aware that they will end up offending a certain community of adivasis. The community is highly offended by the usage of words in that particular video, which was uploaded on June 16.After receiving the comments from the viewers about being hurt, Sambhavna Seth and Avinash Dwivedi took the video down and had to issue an apology. In the video, the couple said, “We had created a video on June 16 and we have now realised that the language used in that video belonged to the Adivasi community from Jharkhand. The community comprises more than 1 lakh people and many of their sentiments have been hurt. Our intention was just to make people laugh through our humorous video. It wasn’t our intention to demean anyone or any community. We don’t have a script, so, in the flow, we tend to speak inappropriate words and go wrong. We would want to apologise to all our subscribers, to the Adivasi and the non-Adivasi community because even we were hurt after reading the comments by the viewers.”LINK Adding further, Sambhavna said, “We didn’t realise that we made a mistake unless the people commented on Instagram and tagged us. We have taken down that video for your respect because we would never want to hurt any community. Our only intention is to spread love. We assure you we will never hurt any community here or anywhere in the world. With folded handed, we apologise to everyone. If at all again, we make a mistake, please let us know because it’s important to know our mistakes.”In the past, Munmun Dutta and Yuvika Chaudhary had also used words that offended the minority community, and they issued apologies too.
