Indian badminton celebrity player, Saina Nehwal was targeted by a section of her so called patriotic 'fans' for endorsing a Chinese brand in a picture which she posted to Facebook. The former World No. 1 player recently shared a photo of her Honor 8 phone that she captioned as loved the phone and the colour.
The same picture was spammed with endless number of comments posted by users supporting and criticising her for the picture. Users asked her to end her contract with the company and called her an ‘Anti-National’ for not endorsing any Indian brand.
However, majority of those who commented on Saina's photo supported her and advised her not get bogged down by the negative comments from a small section.
The 26-year-old player recently returned to the game after undergoing a knee surgery. She is yet to attain full fitness and has struggled to play to her potential post her return.
