Netizens in India were unhappy with the new brand since it had only shipped a small number of handsets for assessment on the day Carl Pei unveiled the first smartphone from his new company Nothing around the world.
In a viral hoax video, a Channel on youtube Prasadtechintelugu pretended to unbox a Nothing phone (1), only to reveal an empty cardboard box with a message inside.
This sparked the #DearNothing and #BoycottNothing trends on social media.
The fake letter begins with, “Hi Prasad, this device is not for Strendouth Indian people. You’re welcome.”
Since then, #DearNothing & #BoyCottNothing has been trending on Twitter. Let’s take a look at some of the most liked and retweeted tweets:
- India is United
2. Power of South Indian
3. India is not only Hindi language
4. DearNothing you are nothing without South Indian support
5. A Twitter user claimed the #boycottnothing trend to be completely bogus.
This #BoycottNothing trend claims to highlight nothing’s unfair practice right after the launch of the first gen. smartphone.
