Amazon Switches Look of App Icon After People Compare It to Hitler’s Mustache

Amazon has quietly swapped the tape on the latest update of the company’s app logo because, well, people thought the old tape looked too much like Hitler’s mustache.

The quiet swap went down in January but apparently people are just now taking notice.

The Verge reported on the tweak, and said that it came after customer feedback and we wonder how many customers actually provided that feedback because we would’ve never noticed.

“Amazon is always exploring new ways to delight our customers,” an Amazon spokesperson said, per The Verge. “We designed the new icon to spark anticipation, excitement, and joy when customers start their shopping journey on their phone, just as they do when they see our boxes on their door step.”

If only the company put that much care and consideration into how to delight its employees.
