TRENDING: #WeSupportSamantha Trends After Backlash From Tamil Netizens!

Solidarity!

Ever since the trailer for ‘The Family Man 2’ was released, there has been a lot of backlash from the Tamil netizens against it. Even Tamil politician Seeman demanded a ban on the series saying that the series shows the Tamil Eelam in bad light. This backlash has come against Samantha, who is playing the role of a Tamil Eelam girl in the series. 

Last week, the Tamil Nadu government had placed a request to the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting to either stop or ban the release of show’s second season. In a letter to I&B minister Prakash Javadekar, Tamil Nadu IT Minister T Mano Thangaraj said the trailer presented Tamilians in a “highly objectionable manner”. However, in spite of these requests and demands, the series is all set to release on June 4. 

2 days before the release, on June 2nd #ShameOnYouSamantha was trending on twitter with a lot of social media users criticizing Samantha for taking up the role. 


While this was trending initially, Samantha fans collectively took effort to trend the #WeSupportSamantha yesterday.  Now, a lot of Samantha fans and fanclubs have made it possible to trend the same and to prove that they stand in solidarity with the actress. Now, it stands as the number 1 trending on twitter. 

Meanwhile, the directors of the show Raj and DK have issued a statement to answer to the backlash. As a part of their statement they said, “we are very cognizant of the sentiments of the Tamil people and Tamil culture and have nothing but the utmost love and respect towards our Tamil people.”


Some fans are also urging people to wait for the series to release so that they could watch it and then make a judgement. The series releases tomorrow on Amazon Prime Video and only after watching it we will know if they have disrespected the Tamil Eelam or not.
