The January issue of Fortune Magazine has stirred up a controversy in the US. This is after the magazine cover portrayed Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos resembling Hindu God Vishnu. The magazine in its latest issue has an article on Amazon’s expansion in India. It talks about how Bezos “aims to conquer the next trillion-dollar market”.
The cover was designed by Sydney-based illustrator Nigel Buchanan whose clients include The Wall Street Journal, MTV, The New York Times, etc.
However the illustration did not go down well with the Hindu community in the US.
Fortune Editor-In-Chief Alan Murray however apologised to those offended by the cover.
The cover controversy comes days after an Andhra court issued a non-bailable warrant against Indian ODI captain MS Dhoni for a similar incident.
He was depicted as Lord Vishnu in the April 2013 issue of Business Today, causing outrage among Hindu groups.
