Some individuals also raised concerns about Swaroop discussing adultery and her apparent casual attitude toward the subject, particularly when describing prostitution as a "cool profession."

Another user on the platform expressed their opinion, stating, "Nowadays, people tend to make jokes about anything and everything. It does make me question if the current generation is moving in the right direction." In a separate comment, a different user conveyed their frustration, wondering aloud, "Why don't those present at the event take action when she discusses such matters?"

Another user Vishwas shared his thoughts, stating, "It's not just disgusting. It's inhumane and cruel behaviour. This insensitive comedy exposes the true colours of today's stand-up comedians. Making fun of cultural values, and telling poor jokes is now normal. Shame on those who laughed at her."
