Karan Johar's season 6 of Koffee With Karan seems to be the most controversial season so far. The episode of cricketers Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul snowballed into a mammoth controversy which also led to the suspension  of the young Indian talent by the BCCI. In a new development, looks like the chat show has now lost its sponsorship from Google owing to the backlash faced on social media for Pandya and Rahul's sexist remarks. In the latest episode of Koffee With Karan, the Google logo was not seen alongside the show's title as opposed to the previous episodes. 

This week, Aditya Roy Kapur and Sidharth Malhotra appeared on the show and just before the rapid fire could begin, Karan did not mention Google Home but instead just said 'turn on the rapid fire lights'. Reportedly, in the upcoming episode with Kriti Sanon and Kartik Aryan looks like the Google Home device won't appear on the side table next to Karan Johar. 

Take a look at some of the references for proof: 

While an official clarification from Star World or Karan Johar is yet to be issued; buzz is strong that the reason why Google pulled out from KWK 6 is because of the Hardik Pandya -KL Rahul controversy. Amidst this entire controversy, a fresh case has been filed against the two cricketers in Jodhpur over their misogynist comments. The details of the case are yet to be known but looks like trouble is not going to end for the two anytime soon.

Karan tries to be cool and irreverant, ironic and hip to the scene but truth is that the show is overrated and outdated. Nothing new to the table. Same format. Same questions. Same celebrities. Its basically his friends on the show. And he gets paid for it. Why not do something meaningful for that show? MAke a change or address some social issue at the end or something? Its so frivolous.... like candy for your brain but after 6 years, it kind of is too much sugar now!!!! come on india!!! don't watch it.... :)

i still dont see why its karan's fault.

he asks the same question to all his celebs and if they (for 6 seasons), can hold themselves up against the questions, why couldnt rahul and hardik do it for ONE episode that is 60 mins long?

imagine if a politician was saying something controversial and so arnab goswami shut his show. thats not how it works. the role of a host is always to egg the interviewees on.

Exactly...look at ranbir and imran episode...while ranbir was showing his real face as a douchebag...imran he was a throughout gentleman...it's not the host fault...

Yeah right. Don't believe the hype.

I just don't understand how the directors/producers/editor of this show didn't think these two guys comments won't be appreciated? There are so many people on the set and not a single person thought it would't go down well? It was just a bad move by everyone. Star Plus owes an apology to everyone. In the end it was essentially in their hand whether they want an episode like this aired.

Google would be pulling out then because of how the show and KARAN causes problems, not the guys. One episode and controversy doesn't make sponsors leave, in fact in most countries a little drama is great publicity. But Karan himself always has negative energy and this season his been boring in general, a lot of Alia questions.

How come no one has calked out Karan Johar for his blatant support and giggke over these sexist and mysoginistic remarks? Not at any piint did he show aversion to any of these comments.

He already apologized

Excatly. Why only 2 cricketers suffer at the end? Why not punish Karan and channel head for allowing this crap to telecast on national television?

This show has become boring and has created so many rifts in Bollywood. Karan is showing is true face thru KWK. Please shut down this show for good.

Good for Google. Don't associate yourself with misogynistic views.
