Complaints Result in “Swastika Boots” Getting the Boot

An unfortunate coincidence?

The ‘Seed’ company, an Australian clothing line is getting some serious heat these days after something resembling a swastika was posted on its official Facebook page.

The photo clearly shows two boots posed into the shape of the Nazi swastika and, if it was done intentionally, then whoever is responsible deserves a swift kick in their ass with the same boots, as the picture was posted during the same week of Holocaust Remembrance Day, which commemorates the six million Jews killed by the Nazis during the Shoah.

The photo, which was posted on Wednesday, was taken down Friday morning.

The general manager of ‘Seed’, Denise Haughley, told news.com.au that she was “concerned” to learn that the image was being interpreted as “anything other than a display of colors of our children’s gumboots. We would like to state that this image was not intended to offend, and we sincerely apologize if it has caused any offence. Please note that the post has been removed to ensure that there is no further possibility of the image being interpreted in any other way than intended.”
