The description says the image of the revered Hindu deity Ganesha is on the hip, but from where I sit, that sure looks like the ass to me.
Whatever the case, it’s offensive to many Hindus, the largest religion in the Indian American community.
Imagine the uproar that would erupt if Walmart sold underwear with the image of Jesus Christ on them.
That’s what happened when word leaked out that Amazon Canada was selling underwear with the Hindu deity Lord Ganesha on the hip.
The next day the online retailer removed “Women’s Ganesh Ganesa Ganapati 4 White Hipsters” from sale.
It had been described as “Sexy Fashion Hipsters.”
