Send to Kindle

The e-commerce giant, Amazon faced backlash from hundreds of furious customers for selling doormats, phone cases, mouse pads  and other products with images of Hindu gods, Jesus Christ and Quran verses.

These controversial items were being sold by Rock Bull and Nicole’s Doormat but the social media outrage seem to have been directed to the company itself, after the hashtag “#BoycottAmazon” became trending on Twitter, last Sunday.  Twitter users threatened Amazon that they will uninstall the app and give it negative reviews.

Soon after, Amazon removed some of the said products from the site.
