Selena Gomez has upset a section of the internet with her new advertisement for sports brand PUMA. The singer collaborated with the brand and did a photoshoot for the advertisement - pictures from which are all over Twitter.
Dressed in sportswear from the brand, Selena is seen standing on a pile of books in a library in the pictures from the photoshoot. Desi Twitter is enraged to say the least as images of Selena's ad are being circulated across social media with angry comments.
"Such gross disrespect" for books by Selena has made Desi Twitter furious. In Indian culture, books (knowledge) are worshipped and that Selena stood on them is something that netizens couldn't accept at all.
"Why is she stepping on the books? Not acceptable," a user schooled the singer while several others slammed Selena for being "insensitive". Some users also said that she will be "cursed" by Goddess Saraswati for stepping on books.
