Controversial billoard along 405 freeway removed
CULVER CITY, Calif. (KGO) -- A controversial billboard is no longer gracing a roadside in Southern California.
On Tuesday, retailer JCPenney removed an ad that promoted a designer tea kettle because of its uncanny resemblance to Adolf Hitler.
The billboard along the 405 freeway in Culver City became a target of bloggers. Some think JCPenney knew about the resemblance to Hitler all along, and put it up to get free publicity.
The retailer denies that.
