After Myntra, Amazon Changes Its Icon As Netizens Compare It To Hitler's Mustache - Viral Bake

Days after Myntra announced a tweak in their logo, now, another e-Commerce giant, Amazon, has sneakily rolled out a small change in its mobile app icon after users pointed out the old logo shared similarities with Adolf Hitler.

Amazon, for the unaware, back in January 2021 had redesgined their logo to replace it with the age-old shopping cart one. Their new logo now shows a brown box with a jagged piece of blue tape stripping down, right above the company’s iconic smile-shaped arrow.

The trend surely made it to the eyes of Amazon and it was then the company decided to come up with a new logo with an official announcement.
