This reason about the logo of StarBucks in Saudi Arabia will blow your mind!!

Different Starbucks Logo for Saudi because of ‘too much skin display.’

Whenever someone says ‘Let’s Go For A Coffee’, Starbucks is the first thing that comes to our mind. We all are obsessed with clicking pictures of Coffee Mugs at Starbucks because of its super cool and classy logo: A mermaid with 2 tails.

While we cannot imagine our Starbucks without the mermaid logo, it is posing problems in Saudi Arabia and has been replaced by a different logo. Yes! Saudi Arabia has a different Starbucks logo and you know why, because apparently the ‘Mermaid’ on the logo shows ‘too much skin’.  What is ridiculously sad is that people can see too much skin in a mere logo.  Heights of Chauvinism!

This logo has been replaced to the one depicting ‘a crown over some waves’.  While the popular belief is that it has been taken down as it shows too much skin but some people say the actual reason is different. They say. “It is because the mermaid has a ‘head’, which makes it look like a woman. As per Islamic dictum only Allah can create a man or a woman’s image. Even mannequins in Saudi don’t have heads.’’

Well, we don’t know which one’s true and which one’s not but this definitely is something new!

More Gossip, More fun…..
