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

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

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.

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."

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

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

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