For those who don’t know, Priyanka Chopra starrer American TV series ‘Quantico’ has managed to create yet another controversy before going off air after this season. They recently tried to explore India-Pakistan storyline in their latest episode ‘The Blood of Romeo.’
FBI suspects a Nuclear Attack right before a peace summit between India and Pakistan. While investigating, Priyanka Chopra’s character finds one of the terrorists wearing rudraksh, by which they conclude that Indian nationalists are trying to blow up Manhattan to frame Pakistan.
Although it’s nothing but poorly written fictional thriller, but Indians are deeply offended by the fact Quantico makers portrayed India as a terrorist country and Priyanka Chopra agreed to it
So offended that they are trending #BoycottSamsung on Twitter.
People are actually planning to Boycott Samsung products until they remove Priyanka Chopra as their brand ambassador. They are also requesting Minister of Information & Broadcasting Rajyavardhan Rathore to not air the episode in India. “If we can make her star, we can take her down as well,” says the user who initiated the campaign.
While some people are calling out their hypocrisy.
Just another day in India, amirite? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Priyanka Chopra is no stranger to social media outrage. She was widely trolled when she met PM Modi, or when she visited Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh as UN ambassador.
As for Quantico, the show has not been cancelled for no reason. Although season one opened to a massive response on the internet and high critic ratings, but the quality and the hype slowly fizzled out in the course of two seasons.
Season 3 premiere opened to less than mere 3 million viewers, which forced ABC to pull the plug on it. The current season will only feature 13 episodes.
