Fans of late Sushant Singh Rajput on Wednesday reacted angrily against two of India’s biggest e-commerce brands namely Amazon and Flipkart by trending #BoycottAmazon and #BoycottFlipkart on Twitter. This was after Sushant fans alleged that both e-commerce brands had joined together to launch a smear campaign against the late actor.
Why Are Sushant Singh Rajput Fans Angry?
What appeared to leave Sushant Singh Rajput fans angry was the viral images of T-shirts being sold on Amazon and Flipkart with the late actor’s photos. Both e-commerce platforms were seen selling identical T-shirts with Sushant’s image on them.
The message underneath Sushant’s image read, “Depression is like drowning.”
This, according to Sushant fans, appeared to give credence to the suicide theory that Sushant had indeed ended his life after suffering from depression. Sushant fans have always alleged that their screen idol was murdered by the Bollywood mafia.
Here’s why they reacted.
Guys it’s time to #BoycottAmazon
This Smear Campaign can’t go on.

Seems like Amazon manager is in Depression. I am sure bollywood is behind this propaganda especially my doubts are on Chrasi Padukone.

Sushant’s body was found in his apartment in 2020.
