IKEA Quickly Pulls 'Offensive' Picture From Their Store

IKEA is facing scrutiny in Cardiff, Wales, after distributing a picture throughout their stores that many customers considered offensive.

Known for their inexpensive and stylish product, the furniture giant was forced to pull a picture from the shelves after a customer tweeted their complaint.

The picture shows a young boy with a finger held across his lip, pretending he has a mustache. Many customers complained this image was inappropriate due to its likeness to Adolf Hitler.

IKEA Cardiff store manager Richard Owen said, "We can confirm that a photograph that could cause some offence to some of our customers was found in our store. We often use photography to illustrate life at home in our room sets and as soon as we were made aware, the image was immediately removed. We apologize for any offence the image may have caused."

Do you find the picture offensive? Or are people are overreacting?
