In her column that appeared in a leading daily, Twinkle wrote, ''In the last few months, we have been offended by Obama's chewing gum, Modi's suit, Kiran Bedi for various reasons and, of course, by the infamous roast."

"If I had to be offended by a live show I would rather be offended by Arnab who invites people on his show and then doesn't let them speak. I saw an episode where he is asking the education minister a question and then screaming over her answers."

"Now that's just bad manners, at least in the AIB roast they called guests over, let them say their bit, people laughed and went home. But we still have to get outraged even though they had made it clear that the show is for adults only."

Bollywood celebrities including Sonakshi Sinha, Priyanka Chopra, Arjun Kapoor supported Twinkle’s opinion.

The AIB roast event, staged in Mumbai in December, was attended by 4,000 people and the audience included Johar's mother, Sonakshi Sinha, Alia Bhatt, Deepika Padukone and Anurag Kashyap among others.

The video of the show went viral on YouTube. It was, however, removed  from YouTube after protests erupted over the use of expletives and sexually explicit jokes.
