Amazon alters app icon after people drew comparisons to Hitler's moustache

Mar 03, 2021 14:45 IST | By Editorji News Desk

E-commerce giant Amazon altered the logo of its mobile shopping app after some said it resembled Adolf Hitler's moustache, reports suggest.

The tech giant had unveiled a new logo in January that had a brown cardboard box with a blue strip of tape on top and the company's signature arrow below.

However, some people on social media drew unfavourable comparisons and felt that the tape looked like Hitler's toothbrush moustache.

The icon has now been tweaked- it shows the blue tape folded over in the corner and instead of the jagged edge it now has a straight edge. The changed app design went live for iPhone users on the 22nd of February and for Android users on Monday, reports confirmed.
