Recently, a stand-up clip of comedian Agrima Joshua has offended the sentiments of many ardent supporters of Chatrapati Shivraj. She has apparently poked fun at the great Maharashtra ruler.
Following severe backlash for her clip, the comedian has apologized publicly and even pulled out the video from the internet after Pratap Sarnaik, the MLA of Shiv Sena, demanded her arrest. Now, Agrima has been receiving abuses and threats from people on social media. One among them is a supposed Youtuber Shubham Mishra who has posted a video threatening her of rape.
As per some sources, he is a close aide of Hindustani Bhau. Shubham has over 298 thousand subscribers on YouTube and posts regularly about trending topics. This video of him where he blatantly issued a rape threat has not been received well on social media and rightly so. He has taken down the video.
People on social media have started a movement demanding actions against the Youtuber for his misogynistic content. The National Commission of Women has taken cognizance of the matter and has requested the Gujarat Police to take immediate action.
Here are some of the tweets.

This man in the picture has openly threatened to rape my colleague in his video. Then deleted the video and said “mera yeh matlab nahi tha” . The video was saved and is doing the rounds.
Let’s start with reporting his profile. If he feels bad then say “mera yeh matlab nahi tha” pic.twitter.com/6xYZEV37JH

Amplifying this so that everyone knows this Sanskaari Boy's face and knows who he is.
His name is Shubham Mishra and he has close to 300K Subscribers on Youtube.

Shubham Mishra's description of 'HOW HE WILL RAPE @Agrimonious' reminded me of the Nirbhaya gang rape n murder case. And we still wonder why India holds least rank worldwide in women's safety ! https://t.co/OcskWbdzpS

What about Shubham? The guy who openly passed rape threats? Are you going to take action or just ignore.
Think about it sir. This time your silence speaks more than your statements. https://t.co/Inz8V2jmhP

The guy abusing/threatening Joshua thinks he is just making a "content". He already has 34K followers on Insta. He is doing this for more followers. And this is because of likes of CarryMinati/HindustaniBhau. Nothing sells like abuses among ViRaL cOnTeNt mAkeRs.

The joke wasn't even ABOUT Shivaji or his statue, she was taking aim at idiots on Quora. But it's as if these guys hear "Shivaji" and go on a rampage on autopilot. We knew there was no sense of justice in this country but apparently we've lost our sense of humor, too. https://t.co/mv0k1FD5bT
