Comedian Danish Sait's latest video about food delivery executives earned a lot of criticism online as people believe that it pokes fun at the pain of the executives who already face a range of problems. Sait’s video shows a day in the life of a delivery executive in Bengaluru.
Lately, many delivery executives have used anonymous Twitter handles to speak and protest against the unfair treatment they are met with at work. From low wages to difficult working conditions, multiple accusations have been anonymously levied against food delivery platforms like Swiggy, Zomato, etc.
One such anonymous Twitter handle named 'Delivery Bhoy' published an open letter criticising the representation of delivery executives in the video. The letter has now been deleted.
Sait quoted the tweet and released a statement apologising for the clip. He also said that he has removed the video from all his social media accounts. However, the video is present on Zomato's YouTube channel.
Responding to Sait's statement, Delivery Bhoy responded, “Hey guys, pls don’t abuse Danish now. He has said his piece & at least the few of us here that I’ve chatted with in private respect him 4 that. This is a productive effort & we believe that he means every word he’s said in his reconciliation. I’ll be taking down that tweet.”
