Amazon adjusts app logo after complaints about laughing Hitler

Amazon Webstore has updated the Amazon Shopping App for mobile phones icon. The reason? According to some customers, the previous icon looked like a smiling Hitler.

The American web shop giant has — in silence — made a small update to the icon for the webshop. The Amazon app logo consisted of the Amazon arrow with a blue piece of tape above it. Users of the App had to think of a smiling Hitler through the jagged piece of tape combined with the arrow.

After complaints about the hitler mustache reached Amazon, the company decided to make a subtle change to the icon. The jagged piece of tape has now turned into a straight folded piece of tape, and has to give users the idea of an Amazon package without having to think of the Nazi leader.
