It all started when a customer named Vikas tried to get his refund after finding an item missing in the order he made. A call centre agent cited language barrier as an issue and made a personal opinion on why everyone in India should learn Hindi language, a “little” bit. Agitated Vikas captured the screen shot of his chat and uploaded it in his twitter handle which blew up across the country. It led to a twitter trending of hashtag “Reject Zomato”.

Hours after the issue made headlines, Zomato came up with a public note, apologizing to Vikas for what happened and announced that the employee is fired. However, Deepinder Goyal founder of the food delivery app, came up with a tweet commenting on the “tolerance” level of people in our country. He who felt the employee is young and still learning, reinstated her. The tweet stirred controversy again as many people who belong to the Tamil speaking state felt that Deepinder didn’t understand the whole context of the issue.
