Flipkart has often been on the receiving end of online trolls, be it for the big billion day pricing, or their hilarious product reviews. They are often called the Rahul Gandhi of e-commerce as well. Today, once again the online world let it all out at Flipkart.
Last weekend, a certain Richa Kaul Padte, tweeted a screenshot of an email received from Flipkart.
Did we read that right? “Beautiful” women are more successful, respected, listened to, and confident, especially if they improve their appearance by dressing well.
And then came the tweets :
Flipkart realized what was going on, when the tweet went viral, and issued a response immediately.
Punit Soni, Chief Product Officer at Flipkart also tweeted about the issue :
Someone surely got a pink slip today.
