Amazon's hall of shame continues with 'vagina art' ashtray
Even the Indian government showed displeasure. External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj too expressed her anger through a tweet and then the doormat item was pulled down from the Canadian website.
Indian High Commission in Canada : This is unacceptable. Please take this up with Amazon at the highest level. https://t.co/L4yI3gLk3h— Sushma Swaraj (@SushmaSwaraj) January 11, 2017
Amazon must tender unconditional apology. They must withdraw all products insulting our national flag immediately. /1— Sushma Swaraj (@SushmaSwaraj) January 11, 2017
If this is not done forthwith, we will not grant Indian Visa to any Amazon official. We will also rescind the Visas issued earlier.— Sushma Swaraj (@SushmaSwaraj) January 11, 2017
Amazon then offered its apologies for the same. But even before that, Amazon had offered flip flops with Mahatma Gandhi’s photo on it. The online retail giant was pulled up again and Amazon responded by pulling down the item.
