JC Penney gets flack over 'Hitler' tea kettle billboard ad in Culver City
CULVER CITY, Calif. (KABC) -- J.C. Penney has brought down a tea kettle advertisement on a billboard in Culver City after complaints that the image resembled Adolf Hitler.

J.C. Penney tweeted that the image was "totally unintentional."
