Question raised on Entertainment Journalists Guild’s credibility as its logo found to be from a free image library

It can be assumed this organisation has been hastily formed only after the Kangana Ranaut issue.

Adding yet another controversy to Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut, an organisation named Entertainment Journalists Guild had ‘banned’ her on July 10. Interestingly, before this ban on the actress, hardly anyone had heard about this organisation, and its Twitter account was also created on 10th July itself. Since then they have posted tweets on Kangana Ranaut only.

A Google search for the words ‘Entertainment Journalists Guild’ prior to this month returns nothing, which means there is no news or any mention about this organisation prior to their announcement about the actor. The Twitter handle also mentions no website of the organisation.

Now BJP leader Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga has discovered another interesting fact about this Guild, he has pointed out that the logo used by the organisation is copied from another organisation.

EJG Logo is cropped version of logo

As can be seen above, the first image is the display image of the EJG’s Twitter handle, and the second image is the logo of an organisation named whysodigital. Comparing both the images, it becomes clear that EJG has used the bottom part of the whysodigital’s logo, which has been combined with the letters EJG to create the logo of the Guild.

On our further research, we found that the whysodigital’s logo is actually a freely available image on nicepng, a free PNG image library. Although it absolves WJG of plagiarism charges, the fact remains that they used an image available on the internet to create their logo, which is never done by any serious professional organisation.

The address given on the statements issued by the organisation, B-901 Sweena Building in Kondivita, Andheri, also seems to be a residential appartment building. Property dealing sites list a property with this name in the same locality as a residential single tower building.

Earlier Filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri had also expressed doubt about the authenticity of this “fake Guild of Entertainment Journalists”, pointing out that its Twitter handle was created just one after a journalist’s spat with Ranaut.

The fact that the so-called Entertainment Journalists Guild’s logo is copied from a free image library raises questions about its authenticity. Moreover, till now no prominent entertainment journalist has been seen associated with it. Coupled with the facts that it was not heard about before, it does not have any digital footprint in this era, and its Twitter account was created just a day ago, it can be assumed this organisation has been hastily formed only after the Kangana Ranaut issue.
