Motorcycle enthusiast and ex-husband of Academy award-winning actress, Sandra Bullock, Jesse James, has sparked controversy with the unveiling of the new logo for his company, West Coast Choppers.

Called the “Warbird”, James’ new logo bears a striking resemblance to the Nazi Resichsadler (or Imperial Eagle) used by the Nazi Party during World War II.

James posted an image of the chrome logo on his company’s website.


This is not the first time James has been involved in a Nazi-related scandal. During the media storm surrounding his divorce from Bullock in 2010, a photo from several years prior was released featuring James wearing a Nazi hat doing a ‘sieg heil’ salute while simultaneously holding his finger above his lip to imitate Adolf Hitler’s mustache.

After the photo went public, James spoke with ABC News insisting that “there’s not a racist bone in my body,” adding “I could tell by the look on my face it was a joke that was funny then, probably for a minute, but then looking at it in the context of now and in my life, it’s not funny.”

In addition to the photo and most recent ‘Warbird’ logo, James was previously accused of Nazi support with his previous West Coast Choppers logo that closely resembled the Iron Cross.
