A video featuring Kunal Kamra's verbal assault on Arnab Goswami on a flight has gone viral and is creating ripples on social media. Many people are praising the Republic TV owner for his tolerance.

Kunal Kamra, who is a stand-up comedy, said that he met Arnab Goswami on a flight. He tweeted today, "Met Arnab Goswami on a flight & gave him a monologue about his 'journalism' All he did was call me mentally unstable & after sometime I had no choice but to return to my seat. The entire flight I'll keep pretending to use the loo just to tell him he's a piece of SHIT F*CK Arnab

Kunal Kamra tweeted the 1.51-minute-long video and he captioned it with "I did this for my hero... I did it for Rohit." In this clip, the comedian repeatedly calls Arnab Goswami a coward and he also uses cuss words often. He says that he insulted Rohit Vemula, who completed suicide, by talking about his caste. While he verbally assaults him, Arnab is staring at his laptop. He neither looks at him nor responds.

How people responded to Kunal Kamra's video:

Aakash Dutt Sharma @duttsthewayy

#ArnabGoswami who is a disgrace to the very idea of journalism, and shouts his guts out on his channel, ironically chose silence on a neutral battlefield with a common man named @kunalkamra88. Arnab, I just wish Karma gets you soon. Else, Kamra surely will. #Jabkamrametarnab.
