New Delhi | Distancing itself from the controversial remark by superstar and its brand ambassador Aamir Khan on intolerance, e-commerce major Snapdeal today said the comments were made by the actor in his personal capacity and the firm is no way connected with them. Snapdeal is neither connected nor plays a role in comments made by Aamir Khan in his personal capacity.

Snapdeal is a proud Indian company built by passionate young Indians focused on building an inclusive digital India, Snapdeal said in a statement. The controversy also raged online, with Netizens airing their views on Twitter.

While many users deleted the Snapdeal app to show their protest against the e-commerce firm of which Khan is a brand ambassador, others have given a one-star rating (lowest). Dear @snapdeal I will not purchase anything from you until you remove @aamir_khan as brand ambassador. Will boycott #AamirKhan movies, read one tweet.
