Manpreet Singh, who runs a YouTube channel by the name ‘Happy Goldsmith,’ recently apologised for uploading a gaming video depicting the assassination of India’s Prime Minister (PM), Narendra Modi. The 20-year-old from Punjab claimed he has been receiving death threats since the now deleted video went viral.
The YouTuber caught everyone’s attention after his Grand Theft Auto (GTA) 5 gaming video went viral. Singh reportedly killed the PM’s character in the gaming video which was uploaded four months ago on his YouTube channel. In the video, Singh was seen giving his followers a commentary in Punjabi on what he would be doing in the video. He said, “The police providing security to Modi would work with us today. He thinks the police would protect him, but he is wrong.” The video then shows protestors blocking the road from which PM Modi’s car would pass. Singh narrates how he plans to block the PM’s way and teach him a lesson.
Singh’s character follows the car in which the PM rides and later chases the car, making it go off the road. He then chains the PM’s car to his tractor and drags it to a place where the protestors are. Singh is then reportedly quoted saying “I am not going to shoot him as police have asked us not to shoot him.” After which he pulls out a hammer to break the glass and then changes the weapon to a baseball bat saying: “Let him come out. I will teach him a lesson with this.”
The PM’s character then steps outside and starts running. Singh’s character is seen chasing Modi and hitting him multiple times with the baseball bat. The video then shows the PM’s character collapsing and soaked in blood. While attacking Modi’s character Singh reportedly says, “He has troubled us a lot.”
In Singh’s latest video, he is seen apologising for the viral video and says that he realizes his mistake of making such a video. The YouTuber also issued a statement saying, “A clip from a four-month video is being circulated on social media. Because of that video, my family and I are getting death threats. People are messaging and calling me on social media, abusing and threatening me. I know I committed a mistake.”
As per news reports, Singh had earlier laughed about the controversial video, claiming that he would never delete that video despite its content. “It was a game,” said Singh reportedly using a cuss word. “Bloody Modi Bhakts have come,” he added.
