Every organization is very particular about its logo because it is something which identifies them and sets them apart from other players in the market. Usually, no company wants to change its logo until very necessary as it is printed on their website, products, packets, etc. but Myntra, the e-commerce company, has been forced to change the logo after a complaint was made against them.
Naaz Patel who works for Avesta Foundation filed a complaint with the Mumbai cyber cell in December 2020 citing that the logo is offensive towards the women community. The Mumbai cyber cell called the Myntra officials for a meeting which they attended and also agreed to change the logo within a month. Myntra has also sent an email in this connection.
The e-commerce company has now changed their logo and this topic has caught the attention of social media users as well. While some made fun by saying that they were not able to figure out this till now despite purchasing so much from the website, few others supported Naaz Patel and there were several people who slammed those who compelled the company for changing their logo.
Congratulations to our founder. She did it what apparently seemed impossible. Thank you everyone for your support. We're overwhelmed by the response. Kudos to @myntra for addressing the concerns and respecting the sentiments of millions of women. 🙏 pic.twitter.com/Iwb4e3LoLq
