Chandarana supermarkets have become the latest brand to receive a public backlash and trend online for the wrong reasons following a scandalous email that was leaked by a concerned customer.
In the email, that was visibly drafted by a personnel who had poor grasp of English, Chandarana asserts that the entity is keen on focusing on “white people to attract business”.
Chandarana has following a public uproar apologized for the racist mail and blamed the offence on a “very new employee” who lacks “profiencey in English”.
“Her lack of proficiency in English language is an easy way to justify this horrendous error but it does not excuse it in any way,” Chandarana said in a statement.
