ShipMonk – logo and name is offensive to Asians and Buddhists everywhere

I recently went to get some quotes for fulfillment for my Shopify store and Amazon FBA replen.

Logo here: https://images.g2crowd.com/uploads/product/image/social_landscape/social_landscape_00a03a0e7125b578be9f90378a9622da/shipmonk.png

I decided on not clicking through the lead form for ShipMonk due to the logo being offensive to me as someone with Asian heritage. I'm looking at ShipBob, OceanX and Whiplash instead.

It reminds me of Mickey Rooney's portrayal of a Japanese man in Breakfast at Tiffany's and as a logo is just as offensive as the Washington Redskins.

I advise other Asian founders and decision makers to take a stand and not consider using a company that has no respect for us. What's next, ShipMuhammed? We know that would not be ok. Stop punching down on Asian minorities.
