Start-up company called Bodega is slammed for 'cultural appropriation' and 'racism'

Start-up company called Bodega is slammed for 'cultural appropriation' and 'racism' after it reveals plan for vending machines that could replace corner stores --Users online called it 'racist,' 'awful,' 'disrespectful,' and a 'gentrification box' --The company's social media pages already seem to have been taken down | 13 Sept 2017 | A new Silicon Valley startup has enraged the internet with its name, logo, and purpose on the day of its launch. The company, called Bodega, plans to install unmanned smart pantry boxes in apartments, offices, dorms, and gyms, which would effectively kill off the very corner stores the startup is named after - its logo is also a cat, a staple of every real-life bodega. When Fast Company published a feature on the startup - which is run by two ex-Googlers - on Wednesday, the piece sent internet commenters into a fury, calling out the company for insensitivity, cultural appropriation, and gentrification.
