      Makers of The Family Man dropped the awaited trailer of season 2 on May 19. While fans were all praise for the leading cast Manoj Bajpayee and Samantha Akkineni, many also slammed the show for showing 'LTTE (Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam) As Terrorists'. Netizens also called for a ban on the show and asked for an unconditional apology from Amazon Prime Video.

      Soon after the trailer release, hashtags like 'Family Man 2 Against Tamils' started trending on Twitter. Many called out Amazon Prime Video for promoting 'Insensitive and politically incorrect' content. Reportedly, the trailer of The Family Man 2 shows Samantha wearing a uniform similar to LTTE uniform while her character has been revealed to be the antagonist of the show.

      One user reacted to the trailer and tweeted, "Dear @PrimeVideoIN, your #Familyman2 trailer is totally insensitive and politically incorrect showing Tamils as Terrorists. We, Tamils (10 crores world wide market ) will stop using #Amazon products if the series is going to be same as the trailer."

      Another said, "#Familyman2 Should be banned permanently. We don't appreciate it and request the distributors to not screen the film in the state. @Samanthaprabhu2 - Shame on you Samantha. #Familyman2_Against_Tamils."

      "It's strategically planned genocide on Tamils. History cannot be erased or eclipsed or changed. #FamilyMan2_against_Tamils," wrote another user.
