American Eagle has made these flip-flop slippers which evidently bear a picture of the Hindu Lord Ganesh. A lot of people have been outraged by this and have been signing an online petition led by American Hindus Against Defamation to make AE stop the sales of these slippers. I've received a number of emails to sign up too. Thankfully, it seems like AE has realized their folly and have sent an apology to AHAD and hopefully the product will be removed soon enough in a few days. Personally, it's REALLY stupid of AE to market a slipper bearing a picture of a God. I mean isn't there even ONE Indian working for AE who realized the design faux pas before it was manufactured in bulk?
