Recently, with TikTok and Instagram Reels giving impetus to a range of trends, many people have questioned where one should draw the line. For instance, TF Vasan, 22, YouTuber and popular biker from Tamil Nadu’s Coimbatore, recently came under the radar of Tamil Nadu cops for his social media posts. Vasan has millions of subscribers on YouTube. The young YouTuber celebrated his birthday in Coimbatore city in July, and local traffic was impacted because of the youngsters who gathered there to see him. He has a huge young fan base and has ridden his pricey bikes to numerous locations, including Nepal and Ladakh, often also getting roasted for his excursions.
The birthday gathering was attended by a raucous crowd, giving it the appearance of a festival. The general public initially even thought that some celebrated actor was causing the hullabaloo.
