Amazon had recently changed the logo or phone app symbol. The new app logo has a brown box, that resembles a packaging box with an adhesive blue strip, appears to be a tape above its signature arrow symbol. Amazon spokesperson Craig Andrews did not directly address the Hitler comparison claims.
“We designed the new icon to spark anticipation, excitement, and joy when customers start their shopping journey on their phone, just as they do when they see our boxes on their doorstep,” Andrews said in a statement. In the tweaked app logo now, the blue strip has been changed to look like someone is tearing the tape.
