  • Indian actor Priyanka Chopra branded an Indian male fragrance commercial as “disgusting” for “promoting sexual violence.”
  • The advertisement shows four men watching a scared woman in a store when one of the men asks, “We’re four, there’s one, who takes the shot?”
  • Almost 24 hours later, the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting took down the commercial and requested that Twitter and YouTube remove the advertisement.
  • Many blasted the commercial for being insensitive, including film writer and director Farhan Khan, actor Richa Chadha and chairperson of the Delhi Commision for Women Swati Maliwal.

Indian actor Priyanka Chopra took to Twitter on Saturday to condemn an advertisement for purportedly promoting rape culture after it aired earlier in the day.
