'Offensive' logo replaced after a police complaint (but we still can't unsee the blunder)

We've seen plenty of plenty of logo design blunders over the year, but few that have ended in a police complaint. That's exactly what has happened to Indian fashion website Myntra, whose "offensive" logo has now been replaced with a subtly tweaked (but not altogether different) design.

A complaint was filed against the logo with Mumbai Police’s cyber crime department, claiming that the original 'M' logo (below) "resembled a naked woman". We're not sure we'd have spotted it before, but now, erm, well, um, yes. Many of the best logos of all time feature secret messages, we're assuming (hoping) that Myntra's wasn't intentional.
