Amazon Changes App Icon After Hitler Moustache Comparison

Amazon has updated its icon for the second time this year, after people drew comparisons between the blue-ribbon on the top of the icon, and Adolf Hitler's moustache. The company had unveiled the new icon in January, replacing the old and familiar shopping cart icon with a brown cardboard box that features a blue ribbon on top and Amazon's signature arrow in the shape of a smile below it. This was Amazon's first change to its app icon in more than five years. However, the jagged piece of blue tape reminded several social media users of Hitler's toothbrush-style moustache. Many took to social media platforms like Twitter to point out the resemblance. After receiving user feedback, Amazon quietly tweaked the app icon to replace the jagged blue tape with a straight one.
