AIB gets into trouble after tweeting a photo of Narendra Modi with the dog filter

AIB is in the news again, and this time for poking fun at the Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The comedians found a doppelganger of the PM and tweeted about it. They then proceeded to slap on the dog Snapchat filter on Modi’s face and captioned it #Wunderlust.
While it was a joke by AIB, the Twitterati didn't quite take to it and reported it to the police. In-turn the police tweeted back saying that they would forward the same to the cyber crime team – more trouble for the comedians.
Although AIB took down the post, they did receive a significant amount of flak and vented their frustration on Twitter, yet again. When Rohan Joshi tweeted saying, "Good change of pace today. Butthurt congresstards for once. Come come. Been a while since you lot felt relevant I guess." Gaurav Pandhi of the Congress responded by calling him a 'coward' and 'hypocrite' for deleting the tweet and even added that unlike the BJP, the Congress would never stifle the comedians' creative thoughts by scaring them.
So so frustrated.— Tanmay Bhat (@thetanmay) July 13, 2017

At least not COWARD & Hypocrite like you all at AIB. Relax, Rohan! The rhetoric isn't going to build a spine for you. Please keep crawling! https://t.co/vaKhu21Dbg— Gaurav Pandhi (@GauravPandhi) July 13, 2017
Tell that to all the people you hounded with 66A https://t.co/kktcrwvcrA— Rohan (@mojorojo) July 13, 2017
This brought on a barrage of tweets talking about how things got the way they did.

AIB: Ye lo. Joke on Modi.
BJP: WTF! REPORT! PUNISH!
AIB: OK. Taking it down.
Cong: WTF! REPORT! PUNISH!
Some pro-congress people also said, "As usual All India Bakchod shows they don't have the balls to make fun of Modi and BJP. Sab herogiri Congress ke khilaf hi nikalti hai."
why did they delete this one? it's not even close to the ones they made on cong.— Yawer (@Biryani_) July 12, 2017
In response, a fan of the comedians responded that AIB had, on many occasions made fun of BJP and Modi a number of times. The user also offered to redirect the person to those tweets.
All in all, it seems like AIB has done it again -- pissed off a group of people.
