Ikea removed a photo of a boy from a store in Wales after a customer noticed that the child’s pose looked a bit like Adolf Hitler.
The photo, which is printed in black and white and used in a showroom, shows a boy holding his finger in front of his top lip as if he has a mustache.
Shopper Stevie Davies-Evans was the first to notice the resemblance.
He furiously tweeted to Ikea about it.
1. He’s not a little boy.
2. He doesn’t look like “Hitler”
3. He’s not doing anything Nazi-like
4. No one who’s offended by this photo was ever subject to Hitler’s behavior. People back then had much more to worry about, and so the sense of outraged concern is insincere.
5. Young people are insane. Does generating such phony umbrage make them feel like better human beings? What next, repression?
This was a funny response:
