Swiggy has been facing flak on Twitter for reposting a meme shared by an IPL fan ahead of the Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders match on Tuesday, April 13.
The tweet by Swiggy showed a photoshopped MI skipper Rohit Sharma reaching out for food at a ‘Vada pav’ stall. Swiggy wrote, “Haters will say it’s photoshopped.”
The tweet caught the attention of Sharma fans, who criticized Swiggy for ‘disrespecting’ the cricketer. Following this, #BoycottSwiggy became the top trending hashtag on the platform today, on April 14.
Below is how the fans reacted to Swiggy’s tweet:
Disrespect to National Player and India's Vice Captain is unacceptable, would never ever buy food from @swiggy_in, will choose @zomatoin instead👍
Shame on u Swiggy!#BoycottSwiggy pic.twitter.com/UaRUDE8yp1

This app is insulting our Indian Matchwinner..
Let's leave Rohit,
Insulting any person like this is Completely wrong in my opinion
Never expected this type of things from Swiggy,
For looking funny,
They are insulting someone!!

These are all keyboard warriors with too much free time on their hands. Ready to boycott anyone just because other s mentality isn't the same as theirs.
