Many netizens, enraged by super star Aamir Khan's views on rising intolerance in India, vented their frustration on social networks and deleted e-commerce app to show protest against Snapdeal.
Snapdeal distanced itself from the remark saying the comments made by the actor were in his personal capacity and it was in no way connected with them.
While hashtags like #Appwapsi and #SayNoToSnapDeal were trending, Flipkart co-founder Sachin Bansal tweeted in support of the rival. "This is a flawed logic. Brands don't buy into brand ambassadors personal opinions. @snapdeal shouldn't face this," Bansal wrote.
Khan was at the centre of a raging debate after he expressed 'alarm and despondency' over the rise in incidents of intolerance in the last six to eight months in an interaction at a ceremony here.
