All the YouTube channels/news channels, have the basic decency to not take pics and videos of funerals. Respect people's privacy for God's sake. Yes, they are in the film industry but that doesn't mean you can poke your nose inside their personal lives. Are you not ashamed?— Rajasekar (@sekartweets) May 17, 2021
பெரிய Youtube சேனல் காரர்களே. வீட்டில் விழுந்த இழவை ஒளிபரப்பி காசு பார்க்கும் நிலையில் நீங்கள் இல்லை என்பது தெரியும், அந்த பாவத்தை தயவு செய்து செய்யாதீர்கள்.— Prashanth Rangaswamy (@itisprashanth) May 17, 2021

They actually filmed the video of the last rites of a celebrity's wife and put it up on YouTube.
Will these so-called YouTube channels be shooting and uploading the videos of last rites if an unfortunate incident happens in their family? Have some shame!— Sai Shyam G (@SaiShyamG) May 17, 2021
Replying to the tweets of Editor Suresh, the official twitter handle of Galatta youtube channel came up with a reply tweet writing “Dear @editorsuresh, we would like to inform you that we have taken down the mentioned videos.
