Flipkart is now under attack by netizens with #BoycottFlipkart trending on twitter. This episode started with a T-shirt surfacing on its online shopping platform that shows the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput bearing a quote which stated. “Depression is Drowning” on a graphic t-shirt.
Citizens then took to Twitter to express their feelings and views on the new t-shirt. Most of them were offended by the quote which tried to portray the late actor who had allegedly died due to depression. Netizens believed that the late actor had been killed by the “Bollywood mafia” and not depression. Twitter has been bursting with the #Boycott Flipkart tag and posts continue to flash Twitter with protest and agony. Where the people have been showing their continued resentment for the product.
There have also been cases when customers have complained to Flipkart and even served the online retailer with a notice for selling T-shirts with false quotes. “As a common and responsible citizen, I will give notice to @Flipkart tonight for accepting a piece of content that disparages a deceased person”. A Twitter user said. Another user commented. “You can’t promote your goods by dragging a dead person, #flipkart. Consider their family members; karma will eventually catch up with you.”
Some netizens even went further mocking Flipkart for its “cheap marketing”.
How abt this @Flipkart? It’s the duty of manufacturer,model & the website to use their ethics & morals before making or displaying the product that is demeaning & dishonouring a deceased person who is nt there to fight for his honour!

@Flipkart why don't you use @deepikapadukone photo for depression msg. She herself admitted being depressed multiple times.@itsSSR never said he was depressed nor can defend himself now. So stop using his name for your business. #BoycottFlipkart
