In 2019 the whole Team 07 got into a big controversy due to their Tiktok video which they made after the lynching of Tabrez Khan in 2017. They said a statement that meant if Tabrez Khan’s son grows up to take revenge for his father’s death it should be told as an act of terrorism.
This sparked hate speech and one of the activists Shiv Sena filed a complaint against Team 07. This was followed by court proceedings and suspension of the accounts of Team 07. After the incident, the members said sorry for their actions and their account was also put back after some time.
In 2020, when Carry Minati posted a video talking about Tiktok and YouTube the whole Team 07 responded back with a soft speech telling that neither platforms are to be deemed and no platform is bad it’s only some people that make it happen otherwise individually. The blow they received in 2019 seems to have made them be cautious at this point. They are trying their best to stay out of controversies.
