You may have noticed that Amazon recently updated the look of their app logo.
What you may not have noticed is what their new app icon looked like. Or, rather, who it looked like.
Good thing other people noticed:

You know what this means, right? Amazon is literally Hitler. They sell “Mein Kampf,” for crying out loud!

How the hell does someone look at that icon and think of H*tler?

You mean you don’t see it?
More from the New York Post:
The e-commerce giant introduced the new icon in January to replace the symbol of a shopping cart with one featuring a brown box with a jagged piece of blue tape above the company’s iconic smile-shaped arrow.
But sharp-eyed users noticed the tape disturbingly recalled the Führer’s toothbrush mustache.
“It’s not just a ripped scotch tape, it’s a ripped scotch tape that has a similar shape and is right on top of a smiling mouth. Looks like a happy little cardboard Adolf to me,” one person said on Twitter.
The worst part is that Amazon’s fix doesn’t really fix the problem:
Now Hitler's mustache is blowing in the wind. https://t.co/IrOYfwLFPk

Blowing in the wind? So now, they’ve managed to make Hitler look majestic on top of just being Hitler.
For shame. There’s just so much shame to be had here.
But no complaints about the the phallic smile? LOL.

You know who else had a penis…?

Holy crap. Hitler had a penis. Hitler had a penis.
Imagine having both a penis and a blue mustache.
TIL: Hitler had a blue mustache…

Alternatively, we could all stop allowing ourselves to be governed by hysterics. https://t.co/TkFIq64rhl
