However, there were some who came out in support of Maan, calling the controversy "meaningless".
I'm glad @gurdasmaan took a stand and stood up for himself and responded to the most meaningless controversy. Everyone that went against him proved his point. Vehle loke have nothing better to do than to stir the pot over nothing.— Gagan Sharma 🇮🇳🇨🇦 (@IamGaganSharma) September 22, 2019
I watched his interview, I don’t feel he has any hatred towards punjabi. He advocating learning more languages. Not sure what is wrong with it. He is damm right about one thing only “vehlad” would make issues— Bill mehrok (@Billmehrok) September 21, 2019
People are holding signs in Punjabi, to protest against Gurdas Maan, in a nation where the official languages are English and French. Let the man have his own opinions. O PM lageya? Our community kills free thought and speech #gurdasmaan— Kabir (@iamkabiraa) September 22, 2019
