Two days after massive uproar across all media platforms following Google search tool showing Kannada as ugliest language, now e-commerce giant Amazon has landed into controversy as it has insulted Karnataka flag.

The state flag and the emblem feature is based on that of the Kingdom of Mysuru and the Coat of Arms of the United Kingdom and is carried on all official correspondences made by the Government of Karnataka as per information in official government records.

But Amazon has reportedly failed to consider this emotion and like how US or Britain and some other countries' flags have been made and marketed as bikinis and bra, Karnataka flag can also be found in the cartel list.

Following the WhatsApp forwards of the same, a pro Kannada organization is contemplating to file a police complaint against Amazon India at the same time urging everyone to boycott and give a bad review to the e-commerce firm.

A hashtag against e-commerce is being shared to ensure the message reaches the company and are hoping that such controversial steps that hurt Karnataka and its people's sentiments are dropped.

Recently, Google search tool had insulted Kannada language and after criticism and uproar, an apology was made by Google and the search tool was altered.
