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.
