About Beirut the Mad Bomber
Beirut the Mad Bomber is one of the secondary characters in the Netflix series GLOW (Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling). She is the wrestling persona of Arthie Premkumar, an Indian-American medical student who joins the wrestling circuit. Due to her appearance, she is given the look of a middle-eastern terrorist named Beirut the Mad Bomber. During her debut match, fans greet her with insults and hostility, seemingly offended by her in-ring persona. In fact, it is Arthie herself who feels offended by the stereotypical gimmick she is presented as, mainly due to her skin color.
Throughout the series, this becomes an issue for Arthie, and she desperately tries to recreate a new persona for herself and shake off the Mad Bomber characterization. Unfortunately, other girls on the circuit steal her ideas, which leads to conflict within the group. As a medical student, Arthie provides first-aid for her fellow wrestlers backstage as she is the only one with any medical training.
