The line in question is;

>"Aishwarya Rai is a goddess, by comparison, Madhuri Dixit is a leprous prostitute."

That being said, the crux of the notice is that the line defames women in general.

My counterpoint, the character Raj is stating his preference over one Bollywood Actress over another(and possibly his distain for latter). It would be akin to American action film fan saying; "Keanu Reeves is a badass, while Steven Seagull is a fat ass wannabe liar who was never that great even in his hay day."

And there goes freedom of speech. This dude is simping so hard over that Bollywood chick that he finds that offensive

It’s against Indian law, according to the lawyer. US speech laws don’t apply anywhere. Even if Netflix chooses to remove this line of dialog from their Indian service, there’s literally no reason to believe they’d remove it anywhere else.

"My feelers got hurt, so I'm taking legal action." Pfft. Do it then, ya loser.

Big bang theory's whole joke structure is "hurrr durr smart people don't function in society, now laugh". Nothing said should be surprising.

Go on YouTube and watch videos where people remove the laugh track. It's super awkward and weird.

To be fair you can do that with any sit-com with a baked in laugh track. It's always awkward because it's never meant to be played without that track behind it.

True. But it also illustrates if the jokes are funny or not. And a lot of BBTs jokes fell pretty flat.

That's the same with any show with a laugh track. The pauses for the laughs make them sound very unnatural if you remove them, but if you didn't have laugh tracks you wouldn't have those pauses.

"Look at how awkward this genius is because he has to put up with so many dumb people, cause he's a genius and everyone else is dumb"

the whole show is unfunny, sexist garbage so this one line being called out is weird but whatever floats your boat ig

Can’t sue for comedy or parody

Say it aint so: they were making comments just to get laughs on a comedy. Shame.
