Spotted in Culver City: Hilter's doppelgänger in the form of a tea kettle. Our sister site Racked National highlights a Reddit debate about the unintentional Michael Graves design, which is featured on a JCPenney billboard. "Wow it even looks like it's beginning a nazi salute," a user adds. As for Culver City's mayor Jeffrey Cooper, he tells Mother Jones: "I am disappointed JCPenney actually put the billboard up in the first place and more outraged that they actually attempted to defend it [...] As a Jew, I am offended, [and] as an elected official, I am mad that the city I represent is linked to this."
