Dhruv Rathee, the AAP fanboy and Congress supporter has now succumbed to another low after unleashing his pack of online troll army on YouTuber Karolina Goswami, who schooled and corrected him for his mistakes on one of his usual fake videos. Goswami released a new video yesterday where she shared a snippet of the conversation between Rathee and a podcast host where the former referred to Goswami as ‘low level people’. Safe to say, such elitist and classist behaviour by Rathee has not gone down well with the netizens.
“Some people had tagged (on the video), I did not see it…but there are many people who want to seek attention by using me… Its one thing that let’s have a conversation and criticize, that is fine, but some absolutely want to use the lowest level… and you know what the problem is in these things? I can also counter that thing, but if I counter, then these ‘low-level people’ will receive publicity and this is what they have been wanting all the time,” said Rathee.
Lacking an acute sense of self-awareness, the pro-AAP blogger continued eulogizing himself as some hotshot celebrity whose castle was far too up in the clouds and that people only used him to climb the ladder of success.
“… they want to hurl an allegation so that I can counter it which will eventually increase their publicity. That’s why I can’t even openly counter these things, otherwise, I am free to debate properly, if anyone wants to do it here in a civil manner. It becomes the same thing that I question Narendra Modi and then say that look, Narendra Modi is not replying to me,” added Rathee.
It is pertinent to note that Rathee had released a video on the World Happiness Report, 2021 recently. True to his ‘jack of all trades, master of none’ credentials, the pro-AAP blogger had bungled up the methodology and had gone on to propagate misinformation to his viewers. Based on the flawed understanding, Rathee claimed that Pakistan was much happier than India, based on the World Happiness Report 2021.
Karolina Goswami, took the onus upon herself to call out Rathee’s lies and in a two-part video, she systematically countered Rathee with facts and the correct methodology. As per Rathee, the World Happiness Report ranks each country based on six indicators. However, the World Happiness Report clearly states that they do not construct their happiness measure in each country based on these six factors as indicated by Dhruv Rathee.
Goswami did the fact-check in a rather professional manner, refraining from making any snide remarks. However, the delinquent and brainwashed Rathee’s bot army came after Karolina and started spewing expletives and nasty, vitriol laden comments on her and her family, just to protect Rathee.
“It has been so painful. I think I will never be able to forget this. We are being threatened, and it seems that we are deeply in trouble,” Karolina had said.
Dhruv Rathee is a serial lie peddling online troll, employed on the payrolls of few vested interest groups and has been christened with the responsibility to regurgitate fake news to suit the agenda of his masters.
