Coldplay’s new video, Hymn For The Weekend featuring Beyonce is out, meaning everyone has watched it already. Now, besides the fact that the Chris Martin is awesome, Beyonce being the stunner steals the show, and Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor is in it, even if it is barely for two and a half seconds, this video is catching some serious heat on social media, especially among the Twitterattis. From stating it as inappropriate to raving about how spectacular Sonam Kapoor looks in this video, Hymn For The Weekend is making a lot of noise.
Here are some tweets. Some are sensible, some are plain insane, some are rude and some are funny as hell!
Beyoncé looked better than any person in your culture ??? pic.twitter.com/l8U3q4dNfT

Let’s not complain about Coldplay stereotyping India. Let’s just exact brutal revenge by having Himesh make more movies in the West. — samit basu (@samitbasu) January 30, 2016
Beyoncé showed India in many ways and made it look beautiful and lovely. She portrayed India excellently. As an Indian, I loved it. — ساويرا (@ArtisticJackson) January 29, 2016

Cultural appropriation is about power structures just as with racism. How is Beyoncé, a black woman, offensively appropriating? — nygma (@Seauxmali) January 29, 2016
