Even if the spelling is altered, this doesn’t change the fact that they are referencing and reducing a specific culturally meaningful phrase to name underwear. It’s a poorly thought out , incredibly disrespectful use of a play on words.
Lululemon Athletica released a line of underwear titled "Namastay Put" referencing the Hindu greeting meaning "I bow to you." Lululemon has actively degraded and sexualized this term and displays a lack of decency and ignorance of the management and leadership at Lululemon. As a brand well recognized across the globe, the company needs to do better!
