Is this a case of some California drivers calling the kettle, well, Hitler?
A billboard in California has caused a stir on social media because some drivers on the 405 freeway near Culver City complained it looked more like the World War II Nazi leader Adolf Hitler than the $40 Michael Graves-designed tea pot that it is.
Gawker.com reported that the teapot scandal first was brought to light on the social website Reddit. So far, a request by the DBJ for comment from Plano-based J.C. Penney Co. Inc. (NYSE: JCP) has not been answered.
But J.C. Penney did take to Twitter with this response: "Totally unintentional. If we'd designed the kettle to look like something, we would've gone w/a snowman :)"
