This move by the filmmaker won millions heart as his followers were lauding him for accepting and his self-realisation. However, some asked Karan to keep posting his kids videos as they are harmless and also asked his not to apologise because so far his videos have not hurt the sentiments of the people.
Why are you apologizing. Your videos are harmless with your kids. You are bringing joy to people like us and I am a healthcare worker in Chicago saying that. You aren’t one of the celebrities showing off, so please don’t apologize and keep posting and sharing joy ❤️😇— SD (@s_brownie) April 25, 2020
Please don't apologize. Yes there are people in dire straits, but a lil positivity and laughter doesn't hurt anyone. My kids watch your kids and laugh at their innocent banter. Dont feel guilty for being happy. We need more. God bless u and the kiddos— Meher (@meherandaI) April 25, 2020
