E-commerce marketplace Snapdeal is facing the backlash of one-star ratings on its app due to a recent statement on intolerance’ made by its brand ambassador Aamir Khan in New Delhi.
Coming out in its defence, Snapdeal took to Twitter and wrote:
Khan, while joining the intolerance debate at an award function on Monday night said, “When I chat with Kiran at home, she says ‘Should we move out of India?’ That’s a disastrous and big statement for Kiran to make. She fears for her child. She fears about what the atmosphere around us will be. She feels scared to open the newspapers every day. That does indicate that there is this sense of growing disquiet, there is growing despondency apart from alarm. You feel why this is happening, you feel low. That sense does exist in me.”
