(Scroll down for video) A new comic book called Hipster Hitler, portrays the Nazi leader as a cool geek.
The new book shows Hitler wearing black-rimmed glasses, eating cashew nuts, playing Pac-Man and riding a bike with a basket on the handlebars.
A group of Jewish activists said that they are committed to destroying all copies of the comic book, claiming that it is anti-Semitic and sick.
23-year-old Shania Angel, whose grandmother died in the Holocaust, said the group plans to boycott stores selling the book.
“The book is a disgrace and should be banned. Hipster Hitler turned Hitler into a cute and fashionable character. It’s offensive to people like me who have had family members killed in the Holocaust,” Angel said.
The authors of the book, James Carr and Archana Kumar of New York, said that the book is a parody and does not intend to offend anyone.
