A few days after Rihanna tweeted about the farmers' protests, the issue was raised outside India again. This time with an ad during Super Bowl.
The 30-second-long ad that was displayed during the Super Bowl, started with a famous quote from Martin Luther King Jr, "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere".
Here’s the Super Bowl ad featuring the Farmers Protest— Simran Jeet Singh (@simran) February 7, 2021
If you haven’t heard about it yet, now is the time to learn. It’s an issue of injustice that affects all of us. pic.twitter.com/a0WRjIAzqF
It then went on to show pictures from the "largest protest in history", followed by a message from the mayor of Fresno, California.
We want you to know, our brothers and sisters in India, that we stand with you.
The ad is now being shared on Twitter with their own reactions. Here are some of them.
Waiting for India to fully wake up and hear about the #FarmersProtest ad aired during the #SuperBowl broadcast. Bhakt first instinct is to claim paid paid paid. Yeah, you have to pay almost 6 million dollars for 30 seconds. https://t.co/lQeZQYHHy7— Gaurav Sabnis 🇮🇳🇺🇸 (@gauravsabnis) February 8, 2021
