A video of Elvish Yadav slapping a fan in a high-end restaurant in Jaipur has been going viral since last night.

He has released a statement on why he beat up the man and you need to know about it too.
Did Elvish slap the man because he asked for a selfie?
Elvish has clicked selfies with many fans but he is also known for his unabashed nature. Thus, when it was reported that he slapped a fan because the latter asked for a selfie, many started believing that could be the case. But according to Elvish himself, there was much more than what met the eye.
In his audio statement, Elvish confirmed that he did beat up the guy but not without a reason. The supposed fan started taunting Elvish and dragged his family in the matter. This irked the YouTuber, who walked back and slapped the man. Elvish was heard confirming the same in an audio which is now going viral.
The divided opinions on the incident
Although many agreed with Elvish’s actions, there was also a section that called him a hypocrite. This is because Elvish is known to use abusive language himself. The same is to create content on YouTube, which is his way of earning a living.
