People with influence are often called out for stuff they say in a public or online medium. Mostly this is due to how insensitive it sounds towards certain groups or communities, their words might be invoking hate and violence or even be plain wrong information that if spread could lead to a lot of damage.
From politicians to actors to digital influencers and more no one is spared from being called out over idiotic things they will eventually say. The general public often takes to social media platforms to roast the person on their nonsense and call them out over whatever wrong thing they’ve said.
Currently, the person at the getting roasted end is YouTuber ‘Flying Beast’ or Gaurav Taneja. One tweet of his has lead to him being mercilessly trolled and mocked.
What Did The YouTuber Say?
On 1st May 2022, Gaurav Taneja aka Flying Beast posted on his Twitter that “ग्रह प्रवेश पूजा Hinduism is a science based way of life. On 3 dec 1984 , two families remained unaffected from Bhopal gas leak. They performed regular अग्निहोत्र (हवन), which is a natural antidote to pollution.”

A lot of people did not take too kindly to what Taneja was stating in his tweet and took to roasting him for blind comments.
Flying beast shows education have nothing to do with knowledge and wisdom,

Burn all the forests from which the particular wood for the havan, burn all the ghee produced by amul in a month, let's combat the issue of air pollution and global warming by conducting mass bonfires of ghee throughout the world..

Iit se hi ho na? Hinduism is great way of life. Completely agreed. Havan an antitode of pollution. Are you serious?

Isko koi Chernobyl me havan karne bhejo. People there didn’t know the ancient secret to remove pollutants.

Havan certainly has benefits of its own but saying that its regular practice protected from methyl isocyanate is too much to claim. I gues it was also claimed in 2020 that havan will kill corona virus but did tht happend?

So basically, performing a havan will protect you against poisonous gas leaks, even methyl isocyanate. @flyingbeast320 is now spreading misinformation in the name of religion. Can't believe I used to idolize this man.

Another graduate of pseudo science from whatsapp University !!
How on earth can you claim that a "havan" has neutralized METHYL ISOCYANATE?perhaps the urge to get more followers has corrupted this man ethically and neurologically @flyingbeast320 https://t.co/QMkvC0mcHa

There is a difference between being proud of your culture & being stupid.
Please read this and comprehend.
By making such scientifically illogical statements and linking it to Havan, you are not only insulting the victims of the tragedy, but also our culture. NOT COOL. NOT DONE pic.twitter.com/CcWMXhJ8Iz

There are surely some benefits to conducting havans and those cannot be denied. But the fact that someone with an influence and public standing like Gaurav Taneja spreading such misinformation is truly something to take notice of and call out.
