Speed News Desk | Updated on: 5 June 2016, 17:03 IST

Online retailer Amazon.com found itself in hot water after received flak across social media platforms for selling doormats with images of religious figures on doormats.

The items on sale included doormats with images of Hindu deities and of the Holy Quran.

Offended by this questionable merchandising strategy, many unleashed a barrage of critique for the online retail giant, some even uninstalling Amazon's apps from their smartphones in protest.

#BoycottAmazon trended on Twitter, with many spewing hatred for Amazon.

In the wake of protests, and several angry users choosing to uninstall the app, Amazon took down most of the products in question.
