Sushant Singh Rajput fans have criticised Flipkart for ‘cheap marketing’ after the e-commerce site reportedly began selling a T-shirt with a photograph of the late actor. In photographs shared via social media, the T-shirt has a message that read ‘Depression is like drowning’. On Tuesday, Boycott Flipkart started trending on Twitter after a fan posted a photograph of the ‘ depression ‘ slogan T-shirt with Sushant’s photograph. The actor was 34 when he was found dead in June 2020.
Angry that the message on the T-shirt described that Sushant died by suicide, fans took to Twitter to share their anger, with some demanding an apology from Flipkart and the removal of the said T-shirt from their website. The T-shirt doesn’t exist on the site anymore.

Sharing the screenshot on Tuesday, a fan penned, “Country has not yet come out of the shock of Sushant’s tragic death. We will keep raising our voice for justice. Flipkart should be ashamed of this heinous act and should apologise that such incident will not be repeated again.” “Now what’s this nonsense Flipkart? Dragging a dead soul and labelling the specific pic as ‘depression’. What kind of cheap marketing is this?” commented a Twitter user on Wednesday. Another wrote, “How can someone even think of something like this?” Another said, “Shame on you Flipkart. You want to malign a person, who is no more to defend himself.”
