Twitter Is Bigly Confused Over Trump’s Apparent Support Of LGBT Film ‘Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan’
Ayushmann Khurrana and Jitendra Kumar’s latest film on a gay romance, Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan has been making waves around the globe. So much so that it even caught the attention of US President Donald Trump. He retweeted an article about the movie by human rights activist, Peter Tatchell saying “Great!”
This tweet comes prior to his visit to India with First Lady Melania on Monday in Ahmedabad. While half of Twitter is applauding the president for his support towards the LGBTQ community, the other half thinks this was a faux pas. Because the president has in the past been quite open about his anti-LGBTQ agendas.
Since being elected, Trump has withdrawn the federal protections that Obama had put in place for transgender students in public schools. In the past, he has also tweeted that he would reinstate the ban on the LGBTQ community in the military.
