Beyonce caused a lot of discontent fans who accused her of misappropriation of cultural property in the Ministry of defence of the new video clip.
The superstar Beyonce, 34, plays a Bollywood actress in the clip for Hymn for the Weekend – on which she also sings – and has been slated for dressing up as an Indian actress.
In the video she has henna tattoos covering her hands, wears saris and makes kathak hand gestures – linked to a classical northern Indian dance.
But at other points she bares her chest in a plunging dress while wearing a floral crown.
And fans have taken to Twitter to argue over the clip, which some believe is disrespectful to the Desi cultures of south Asia.
Many users of social networks are outraged by the clip Beyoncé
One user @hedamila wrote: “beyoncé is wrong and her appropriation is super offensive to some people end of story.”
And @solocalum tweeted: “Beyoncé and Coldplay appropriated the desi culture yikes.”
Another angry fan added: “thank you @Beyonce for being just as ignorant and f**king stupid as the s***ty band you did it for.”
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.”
