Social Media Expert and Brand Consultant Karthik Srinivasan also took to Twitter to ask how were the social media posts approved by the managers in the first place.


While these memes should never been approved by the brand and we are appalled by the distasteful content, #boycotterosnow started trending for the wrong reasons and the conversation derailed from why brands should stop sexualising women to religion bashing.

The Twitterati gave a religious angle to these inappropriate posts. They drew comparisons with Eros Now’s Eid posts and Hindu festival Navratri and were outraged because Muslims weren’t sexualised. They even targeted Eros Now’s CEO Ali Hussein.
