Fans have taken to social media to slam Married at First Sight’s choice of music as Dino Hira appeared on screen.
Sitar music could be heard playing as the reality TV contestant discussed making love with 'wife' Melissa Lucarelli.
'Sex to me, there's a connection of energy. It's a connection of your spiritual self. You know, we can only do that if we are all both on the same level,' Dino said.
'And if we open our hearts the same way. Do I want to make love to her soul before I make love to her body?'
Fans quickly took to Twitter to express their anger.
One fan tweeted: 'Oh, Indian music for Dino the guru.... how about something nice and low key racist for [Asian contestant] Ning too?'
Another wrote: 'Did they literally just play middle eastern music over Dino, the middle eastern looking man? Jesus Christ'.
Another viewer complained: 'Nothing culturally stereotypical about the sitar playing in the background every time Dino speaks.'
