Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], July 27 (ANI): Fans of Sushant Singh Rajput are outraged and have shared screenshots of a T-shirt allegedly sold on Flipkart with a photo of the late actor and the message reading 'Depression is like drowning.'
"Boycott Flipkart" trended on Twitter on Tuesday evening after one of his fans discovered a T-shirt which included the artwork of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput referring to his "depression" on the website.
As soon as it was shared, the picture of the t-shirt went viral and fans of Sushant complained on Twitter over the T-caption. Some of them demanded an apology from Flipkart and the withdrawal of the offending T-shirt from their website. The T-shirt is no longer available on the website.
As many people responded with disbelief, fans of the late actor tweeted screenshots of Flipkart's T-shirt with Sushant's picture. The "insensitive" product stunned some people, while others dubbed it a "smear campaign" against the late actor.
A user tweeted, "I will serve notice to @Flipkart tonight (for approving a material which is defaming a deceased) as a common and responsible citizen."
