Tea Kettle Said To Look Like Hitler Quickly Sells Out

05.29.13 11:18 AM

KEMMERER, Wyo., (UPI) –* Wyoming-based retailer JC Penney quickly sold out of a tea kettle on its website after online commentators noted its resemblance to Adolf Hitler.

The kettle, which a Reddit user first said resembled the Nazi leader during the weekend due to the negative space created by its Hitler-hair-shaped handle, went viral and was sold out on the retailer’s website by Tuesday afternoon, Time.com reported Wednesday.

The kettle was the only one of 31 different styles of tea kettle on the retailer’s website to be sold out Tuesday.

JC Penney did not respond to messages about the product, Time.com said. However, the issue was addressed on the company’s Twitter page, where the resemblance to Hitler was explained as unintentional.

“If we had designed it to look like something, we would have gone with a snowman or something fun,” the tweet read.
