Zomato indulged Swara Bhasker’s need to stop advertising on Republic Bharat. And responded to her tweet; it said it does not ‘endorse any content except its own’, but will look into it. This earned the ire of netizens, where a significant number of users began to require Zomato’s boycott. Soon, they were deleting the app, cancelling their Zomato Gold subscriptions and leaving low rankings with poor reviews on Google Play and Apple app stores. Quite a couple of even published videos of them ‘boycotting Zomato’.
Up until now, Zomato has not launched any more declaration about this concern.
