India's ace comedian and the favorite child of controversy, Kapil Sharma has landed himself in trouble all over again. In a new tweet on late Friday night, he accepted that it was indeed him who wrote the string of highly abusive tweets earlier in the day.

“Maine jo bhi likha apne dil se likha tha... It was my team who deleted the tweets ... But main is k***e bikaayu reporter se darne wala nahi hu... he can write anything for anybody just for a few bucks. Shameless, (Whatever I was wrote, was written from my heart. It was my team who deleted the tweets. But I will not be scared by this sellout reporter. He can write anything for anybody just for a few bucks. Shameless),” he wrote in a tweet.
On early Saturday morning, Kapil again tweeted the same message with a photo of a police complaint filed against the journalist and the former producers of the show.
Kapil sent out multiple tweets on Friday, each more abusive than the other. His initial few tweets were in defence of Salman Khan and his prison sentence in the blackbuck poaching case. “I have met many people who have told me with pride that they hunt lions. Salman helps people... he is a good man. I don’t know if he did it or not but the system is crooked. let me do good work,” he wrote. The monologue then snowballed into expletives-filled rant against the media. He said that if was ever to become prime minister he would hang everyone who spreads ‘fake news’.
However later Kapil tweeted that his account was hacked but none of them bought it. Keen eyes on Twitter pointed out how he never puts periods at the end of his sentences and heavily uses double periods to give pauses in his messages, something he did in the abusive tweets as well.
Kapil’s troubles began in March 2017 when he physically abused his co-stars from The Kapil Sharma Show, specially Sunil Grover, on a flight. Sunil later quit the show and more actors followed him on his way out. He recently launched a new show, Family Time With Kapil Sharma, which was met with negative critical and audience reactions.
