A Website Selling ‘Netflix & Chill’ Rakhi Faced Memes & Problematic Reactions; Here’s What it Means

Rakshabandhan is just around the corner and this festival marks the pious bond between a brother and sister. While the brothers are on the hunt of finding the perfect gift for their sisters, the women are keen on buying that special and unique Rakhi for their brothers. 

Earlier Rakhis used to be simple and basic but nowadays a plethora of Rakhis are being sold for every mood. For kids, one can see Rakhi with cartoon characters and even beautiful lights. For someone who is a foodie, you’ll find Rakhi with an image or a motif of a food items. Even musical Rakhis are also available nowadays that play music when you press the button. 

However there is one Rakhi which is getting viral on the internet that says ‘Netflix and Chill’. 

Yes, you heard that right! A company named Ishkaara is selling ‘Netflix and Chill’ Rakhi for ₹199 and it seems like the brand doesn’t know the actual meaning of this phrase. 

For those who are innocent and unversed with this term, ‘Netflix and Chill’ is a euphemism for s*xual relationship. This slang is used by the Genz to denote s*xual relationships be it romantic or casual. 

So, a Rakhi with such slang written on it is bizarre and it will be highly incestuous if this kind of Rakhi is tied on a brother’s wrist. 

Getting viral on the internet, this Rakhi has become a source of laughter and memes and the netizens cannot stop themselves from sharing it.
