Eros Now’s Vulgur Tweet on Navratri
We must preserve cinema as a community viewing theatre experience,its more difficult to enthrall large section of audience than sexualise content for personal viewing, digitisation of art faces this major crisis, all streaming platforms are nothing but a porn hub.

@ErosNow immediately remove your CEO Ali Hussein for these vulgar tweets & open display of hate against Hindus & our sacred traditions.
We will not allow cultural & religious Jihad against Hindus through your platforms.

Is this for real? Is this from this year? I am at a loss for words. Who at @ErosNow actually thought this is clever?
