AMAZON UPDATES ICON AFTER HITLER COMMENTS

-

Amazon has apparently updated the icon for its mobile app that some claimed resembled the face of Adolf Hitler. The logo in question looked like a cardboard box with the Amazon smile logo imprinted on it. At the top center was a piece of blue shipping tape with jagged edging, which drew comparison­s to Hitler’s mustache. As of Tuesday, the icon shows the blue tape with a corner peeled upward, to represent the package being opened. Amazon did not address the change specifical­ly. However, in a statement to USA TODAY, the company said the app icon update change, the first in five years, was part of its strategy to find ways to “delight our customers.”
