Swara said that being a loyal user, she wasn’t okay with her “money even indirectly funding this kind of communal bigoted hate!” She tweeted: “Hey @zomatoin @zomato @deepigoyal I’m your regular customer.. do u plan to #DefundTheHate & pull your ads from hate espousing channels like @Republic_Bharat ? I’m not okay with my money even indirectly funding this kind of communal bigoted hate! Pls let your consumers know.”
