Amid controversies and criticism surrounding the release of The Family Man Season 2, Samantha Akkineni’s fans took to social media to show support for the actress who has been trolled continuously since the trailer dropped a couple of weeks ago. For the uninitiated, Samantha, who is said to be playing an extremist character in the show, found herself on the receiving end of hate and trolling as people accused the show of portraying Tamils in poor light, through Samantha’s character. People, including politicians, demanded a ban on the series and Amazon ordered a gag order on the actress.
Now, ahead of the show’s release, her fans have taken to social media to show their support and have filled Twitter with pro-Samatha posts along with hashtags like #WeSupportSamantha and #WeLoveSamantha.
Take a look at some of those tweets:
