Aday after KFC India took to Twitter to issue an apology regarding a post by the company’s official Pakistan handle, Domino’s India has come out with one as well.
The brand landed in controversy after a now-deleted post by the company’s Pakistan handle went viral online. The post was shared on February 5, 2020 and was about depicting “solidarity” with Kashmir. February 5 is observed as Kashmir Solidarity Day in Pakistan.
The post was shared on Facebook and a screenshot of it is being widely circulated online. #BoycottDominos started trending on Twitter. “The nation is one in support of our beloved Kashmiris, may they live as a sovereign nation soon,” read the caption of the image.
“Let us come together and stand for Kashmir,” read the text in the picture.
Several other brands such as KFC India also released an apology on Twitter. Meanwhile, companies like Maruti Suzuki, Hyundai Motor India, Kia Motors and Pizza Hut issued statements on the issue.
