The public has called for an end to ‘cancel culture’ and ‘woke’ stunts after global e-commerce giant Amazon decided to tweak its app logo after some commentators saying it resembled Adolf Hitler.
The observers compared the icon, which depicts a strip of blue tape over an Amazon ‘smile’ logo, to the toothbrush moustache largely associated with the Nazi dictator.
Following the comparisons, Amazon quickly changed the logo so that the tape no longer has ridges and is now folded on one corner.
However, many took to social media branding the comparison ‘pathetic’ and ‘one of the dumbest cancellations I’ve seen yet’.
‘An app logo of a box with clearly tape on it resembles the face of Hitler? There’s literally nothing that surprises me anymore with cancelling anything for any given reason,’ tweeted one.
Another added: ‘Whoever thinks that resembles Hitler needs to get out more.’
