All you need to know about why #BoycottFood trended on top when farmers protest rocked Delhi borders
The trolls have been trolled, Twitter witnessed a satirical trend #BoycottFood trending amid farmers protest against Centre’s farm laws
As the country witnessed yet another protest by agitated farmers against Centre’s farm laws, an interesting trend #BoycottFood kept trending on the social media platform Twitter.
And the story behind this trend is quite interesting. Apparently every other day the pro BJP or the pro government twitter handles start bombarding the social media platform with ‘boycott’ msg against whoever they deem is against the government or the right wing ideology.
This was very apparent in the case of the controversial Tanishq advertisement which was eventually withdrawn but left yet another trend ‘Love Jihad’ which was then taken ‘seriously’ by some of the BJP-led state governments. So much so, that they have decided to make law against love jihad.
