Surf Excel's latest ad featuring a Hindu girl and a Muslim boy celebrating Holi has not gone down well with certain sections of society. The hashtag #BoycottSurfExcel has been trending on social media for days.
And people who got offended by the ad also mistook MS Excel for Surf Excel, it seems. And they let the software company know!
They went online and started giving 1-star ratings to Microsoft Excel, calling it 'Hindu-phobic' and 'Anti-Hindu'.
Well, obviously, the rational people of this country realised this was happening and let their feelings out on Twitter.
I think they got lost online a bit. pic.twitter.com/zo5AqSxb5J— Karthik (@beastoftraal) March 11, 2019
Just to be clear folks, Surf Excel and Microsoft Excel are from different companies and to the best of my knowledge do not have any business with each other.
