Belle Chic Sorry About Tote Bag That Appears To Spell ‘Hitler’ In Glitter

All that glitters is not gold. Sometimes, it’s Hitler.

An online clothing store was flooded with criticism this week for selling a tote bag that looks like it says — well — see for yourself:

The loopy font on the bag is, of course, meant to spell, “My favorite color is GLITTER.”

The company, Belle Chic, posted a gracious Twitter apology and has reissued the bag with a clearer font.

That’s a capital-G Good Save.
