ðÂ¤¦ðÂ¤¦ I have been looking at this logo for so long never found it vulgar. Been shopping from Myntra for years seen its logo for so many years.— KS (@Khushboosinha19) January 29, 2021
The funniest thing about this whole Myntra thing is that, even though I highly doubt that many minds went there in the first place, you can't really unsee it anymore. And the new logo isn't enough of a redesign to ever change that association now. pic.twitter.com/hCNvaNf5eC— Sahil Rizwan (@SahilRiz) January 30, 2021
This Myntra thing has ruined the letter M for me as a whole. Totally. Thanks.— Sidin (@sidin) January 30, 2021
Meanwhile, the company replaced the old logo with a new one but has restrained from saying anything about it.
