Brand Ambassador - Yash Chopra - Really??

I am surprised and shocked till what extent can companies go to market their products/services in India. Have a look at the above picture and the message in the advertisement of a website called healthmeup dot com. Just because Yash Chopra recently died due to dengue, does not give the right to any company to use his picture and start promoting their services to prevent that disease. It is unfortunate that Times of India has allowed the advertisement to go on their homepage.

I even have doubts that the website, healthmeup dot com could be part of the Times Group itself!.
