CEAT Tires has been slammed by indian netizens for their insensitive advertisement.
CEAT Tires made a new ad featuring Aamir Khan. The ad featuring Amir Khan has the narrative as him advising kids to blast crackers inside the compound but not on roads later the focus transfers saying until we stop blasting crackers on road, use ceat tires. This has become a problem as Hindus were known to have taken offense by this advertisement.
They have apparently started trending the hashtag #ShameonYouCeatTyres on twitter slamming the brand. To make it more controversial, the bjp mp has asked the company to address the problem of blocking roads in name of namaz and noise emitted from mosques during prayers.
In a letter return to the company's managing director Anand Goenka, he has requested him to deal with their latest advertisement which has created an “unrest among the Hindus” and also has expected that he will keep in mind of their “Hindu sentiment” in their future works.
The crazy part is that along with the slanders on CEAT tires, Amir Khan who features in the advertisement is also being attacked by the twittertis. We can expect a response from CEAT tires very soon.
