(Scroll down for video) JCPenney reported that the tea kettle that some said looks like Adolf Hitler is no longer available as they have been all sold out.
As we reported earlier, a certain tea kettle is quickly becoming a red-hot hard to find item after JCPenney decided to pull their Hitler tea kettle billboard advertisement.
Within days that the world saw Hitler in the JCPenney teapot billboard in Culver City, California, the advertisement has been removed and the teapots are not available on the JCPenney company website. They are still available in some JCPenney stores.
They are, however, selling on ebay for up to $325 and listed as “impossible to find” and “red-hot”. It started selling on ebay for $199.
JCPenney worked fast and furiously this week to reassure customers that any resemblance of its teapot to Hitler was unintentional.
As we reported earlier, some people were outraged by the sight of giant billboards which advertises a kettle that seems to resemble the Nazi leader Adolf Hitler, according to photos uploaded to the internet.
A driver has published the first images of a giant highway billboard kettle that looks a lot like Adolf Hitler.
The advertisement by JCPenney has left motorists in Culver City, Los Angeles, California feeling as if they were just driven over the edge.
“I saw this yesterday and my boyfriend told me I was crazy, now, I feel better that I am not the only one who noticed this,” that uploaded of the image said.
Another person said: “I’m looking at this from my office building every day and now I can tell my coworkers that I’m not the only one who saw Hitler the bells and whistles!”
“Even if it was not meant to resemble Hitler, JCPenney should immediately have all the billboards removed. Any resemblance of Hitler is extremely despised by most Americans,” Megan Long, 50, of Los Angeles, California told YourJewishNews.com after being asked to comment about the kettle Hitler advertisement.Mobile video not loading?
