However, others have also accused Coldplay of being responsible as they came up with the video concept.

Tweeter @blackwidowmami said: “This is really all Coldplay’s fault obviously and Beyoncé should’ve walked away when they pulled the outfit out.”

The video - which was shot in Mumbai

The video – which was shot in Mumbai, India, and directed by Ben Mor – sees the band’s frontman Chris Martin walking through the streets of the city before entering a cinema where he watches a film starring Beyonce in traditional Indian attire.

  • I like coldplay and beyonce but they definitely exaggerated and exploited this culture to the fullest. The video is a compact of cheerful visual wonderland through the westerners eyes of what a place like india is like.
