To those who are not fully aware of the reason behind the viral hashtag, let us tell how what exactly enraged desi Twitterati. Amul recently posted a topical ad over the boycott of Chinese products, which was also a trending hashtag, running on social media amid India-China border tension. Called ‘Exit the Dragon,’ the ad features Amul’s Utterly Butterly girl protecting India from a dragon, which is considered a symbol of power and good luck in China.
