The people in this country are calling for a boycott of Pizza Hut

The people of Saudi Arabia called for a boycott of Pizza hut after the food chain posted an offensive tweet.  The chain had published an advertisement on Twitter which apparently mocked people with speech impediment. The same was done on International Stammering Awareness Day and this did not sit well with the people in Saudi Arabia.

Social Media campaigns urging everyone to boycott the chain soon poked up and tweets with the hashtag of #I_am_boycotting_Pizza_ in Arab was flooding in. Around 50,000 tweets came in and Pizza Hut came out and apologized for their tweet later.
