Some observers are claiming that JCPenney’s new tea kettle appears to look like Adolf Hitler.

The Michael Graves-designed kettle was first cited by a user who posted a picture of a JCPenney’s billboard near Interstate 405 in Southern California.

Some users thought the billboard was some sort of  “viral” marketing.

Other users made comments such as: "He even has his right arm extended" and "I'm a little Nazi, short and stout," reported The Telegraph.

The tea kettle costs $40 on JCPenney’s website and is described as: "This stainless steel tea kettle has all the bells and whistles you'll need - a cool-touch handle, space-saving design and a delightful whistle to let you know when it's ready to pour."

JCPenney has not responded to the claim yet.
