JCPenney Drops ‘Hitler Teapot’

Apparently not wanting to be linked with Nazis, JCPenney has wiped out all signs of the so-called Hitler teapot. The California billboard that started the meme was taken down yesterday, and the online listing for the Michael Graves kettle has been taken down. After Reddit seized on the billboard, JCPenney spent yesterday saying that any similarity between the tea kettle and Hitler was unintentional. But it wasn’t all bad news for the embattled retailer: the kettle, which cost about $40, sold out almost immediately. Now they’re going for $199 on eBay.
