The women reacted to the video soon after it was published, protesting that the women in the video were pictured as "cleaning or the kitchen workers". A woman who reacted to the video is Nazan Sakallı, who is a lawyer stated that "Who watches this video would think that the women in İzmir only clean the floors and make sandwiches. There is no such İzmir." Many women reacted to the sexist portrayal of the women in the video and raised a campaign for the video to be removed.
