Shakira Pulled Nazi-Like Necklace From ‘El Dorado’ Tour Merchandise

    Shakira is under fire for selling a tour merchandise necklace resembling a Nazi symbol, according to Hollywood Reporter.

    German publication Bento first called out the necklace, a featured product for the singer’s El Dorado tour, for bearing similarities to the Nazi Black Sun symbol, which encompasses swastikas. The Black Sun was first used in a mosaic at the Wewelsburg Castle in Germany, which served as a home base for the SS party and Adolf Hitler’s close associate, Heinrich Himmler.

    The gold pendant is no longer for sale.

    Live Nation addressed the backlash in a statement on Twitter, explaining that “the necklace Live Nation designed for Shakira’s El Dorado World Tour was based on Pre-Columbian imagery.”
