With the help of this Friends clip, Mumbai police create awareness against stalking
Men are frequently shown proposing to women and refusing to accept no in films and television shows all around the world. Mumbai Police, however, refuted this notion in a recent social media post and pleaded with people to refrain from engaging in such behaviour. The usage of a segment from the popular sitcom Friends piqued people’s attention more.
Additionally, the law enforcement organisation urged citizens to report sexual harassment and stalking by dialling the police helpline at 100. A scene from the popular sitcom Friends was shared by the Mumbi Police. Chandler, a comedy character, is shown on a phone with a woman in the video.
In the call he says, “Hey Janice, this is me. I just want to apologise in advance for having chased you down the streets. Bye”. Chandler then cuts the calls and rushes through the door.”
While sharing this video on Instagram from their official account, the Mumbai Police wrote, “Could you Be more in the wrong? Do not chase her down the streets. #SheMatters एक आक्षेपार्ह पाठलाग! जेव्हा तुम्ही तिचा रस्त्यावर पाठलाग करता तेव्हा ते “विचित्र” वाटते … आम्ही तुम्हाला क्षमा करणार नाही, कठोर शिक्षा करू. #NoMeansNo #Dial100 #friends”.
The post’s sharp and humorous take on stalking impressed the netizens. The post has gathered over 26,000 likes in less than a day. Commenting on it an Instagram user wrote, “Teaching Laws via memes! Just Mumbai Police Admin Supremacy! ❤️😂🔥🔥 #aamchimumbai #mumbaipolice 💪🇮🇳”.
Another person wrote, “Damn Mumbai police marketing team needs a raise by posting so funny videos and posts 😂🔥❤️”.
