Deepinder Goyal, CEO of Zomato, has took to X to deny that the food delivery platform had any role in making a video of a woman in the company’s uniform, driving without a helmet.
What Happened: Goyal responded on Tuesday to a tweet by another X user of a video involving a woman riding a bike without a helmet, which was claimed to be the idea of the “Indore Marketing Head” of Zomato. In his tweet, Goyal clarified that the company had no involvement in the matter and that Zomato does not endorse helmet-less biking.
Goyal further stated that Zomato does not have a position titled “Indore Marketing Head”. He suggested that the incident may be a case of someone “free-riding” on the company’s brand.
In his tweet, Goyal also expressed his pride in the hundreds of women who deliver food for Zomato every day. He acknowledged that these women are earning a livelihood for their families and commended their work ethic.

Why It Matters: Goyal’s quick response likely addressed concerns about the safety measures followed by Zomato’s delivery professionals, who have been previously reported to be driving in risky conditions to deliver time-bound orders.
