#BoycottErosNow: Boycott Eros Now turned top Twitter trend on Thursday morning after netizens called out the film production company for sharing “vulgar” tweets and memes on Navratri. A section of the internet is upset with Eros Now for allegedly “violating” the religious festival of Navratri by “mocking” and “insulting” it.
Sharing the alleged screenshots of Eros Now’s Navratri posts, one user tweeted, “Look At What Type Of Post Is Posted By Eros Now On Instagram Regarding Navaratri. #BoycottErosNow”
Another tweeted, “Just a miniature sample of the #Hinduphobic posts by @ErosNow on Twitter and Instagram. It seems brands have started offending Hindus to capture cheap attention. Don’t allow this attention gained for ‘cheap‘.”
