BOLLYWOOD actor Randeep Hooda has been removed as the ambassador of the Convention for the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS), United Nation’s environmental treaty, following a controversy over his derogatory comments against Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati. Randeep Hooda has been under fire since Wednesday when a 9-year-old video of him making a joke, which social media users termed casteist and sexist, went viral online. The 43-second-clip from an event organized by a media house in 2012 resurfaced when a Twitter user shared it. The video has Mr. Hooda cracking a joke and then laughing along with the audience.
The video starts with the actor saying ‘I think I will tell a very dirty joke’ and made Mayawati, the premise for the joke. Watch the video here:
