American e-tailer Wayfair has come under fire for selling bath mats with Hindu Gods. The Boston-based e-tailer company Wayfair was selling home goods. Wayfair has been stocking and selling bath mats with Lord Ganesha and Lord Shiva's imprints on it. American Bazaar has reported this on Saturday.
The mat described as Yoga Asian Lord with Third Eye Bath Rug by East Urban Home. It is being sold on the website for Rs 2,883 (USD 41), another mat named as "Asian Face of Elephant Lord Bath Rug" is being sold for Rs 2,693 (USD 38.99).
These kind of complaints have been registered against Wayfair earlier as well. There were complaints against the e-tailer for selling the Hindu Gods imprinted bath rugs and cutting boards.
The initial goal of the petitioner was to get 150,000 signatures, but later the target was increased to 200,000. By Friday, it received nearly 156,000 signatures from people across the globe. The petition demanded an apology from Amazon.
We should protest these kind of activities. This should be condemned as well.
