Everyone's Mad At Myntra For Using Hindu Gods In An Ad... But Myntra Didn’t Even Do It
A social media company created the image as part of a Facebook album months ago, but the flood gates of outrage against the shopping app had already been opened.
Five months ago, media company Scroll Droll uploaded a Facebook album depicting Indian mythological figures using modern technology.
One image in particular was of Lord Krishna using Myntra to buy a sari for Draupadi.
People began uninstalling the app, and #BoycottMyntra quickly became one the highest trending topics in the country.
After the trend skyrocketed, Myntra tweeted this:
Scroll Droll took responsibility for the illustration and apologised for hurting sentiments.
They even reiterated that Myntra had nothing to do with the artwork.
After a while sever users realised that the outrage was misdirected towards Myntra...
But the flood gates had already been opened.
The internet, amirite?
