Owner names store ‘Hitler,’ Doesn’t understand why people are mad. He didn’t know who Hitler was…OOOKKAAAAYYY…
In the Jewish community of the Indian city of Ahmedabad a clothing store opened with not only the name Hitler but also a swastika as the dot above the “i” as you can imagine people are not thrilled.
“In the city of Mahatma Gandhi and non-violence, how can anyone celebrate a person like Hitler who is known to have murdered millions of unarmed ordinary civilians?” said Friends of Israel member Nikitin Contractor.
But co-owner Rajesh Shah says he was caught off-guard by the backlash, particularly since no one complained when they put up a banner announcing “Hitler opening shortly” and kept it up for over a month.
Is this douche for real?
As for the name, Shah again pleads ignorance, telling the Times of India the store was named after his business partner’s grandfather who was nicknamed Hitler “because of his strict nature.”
He continued: “Frankly, till the time we applied for the trademark permission, I had only heard that Hitler was a strict man. It was only recently that we read about Hitler on the internet.”
Has has he been living in an Igloo his entire life? Who the eff does not know who Hitler is? That would be like me opening a store in West Hollywood called Anita Bryant’s…Lets say hypothetically hes excuse is true, what about the people around him? Are we suppose to believe that NO ONE clued him in on who Hitler was? And the swastika touch? Are we to assume he had no idea what that little “gem” represented? Look, if your going to bullshitz, at least make an effort.
Now here is the kicker that really makes this gull full of the bull, Shah said he would be willing to change the store’s name, but only if he is compensated for the sign.
Need i say more?
