Jawed Habib noted in his apologetic video that such things are regularly done with a "humorous" motive during workshops. He was, however, deeply sorry if anyone had been harmed as a result of this.

“During my seminar, I said certain things that hurt a few people. I just want to clarify that they are professional workshops, meaning that they are attended by experts in our field. We have to make these sessions funny when they grow too long. I'm not sure what to say. If you have been hurt, please accept my heartfelt apologies.
