    Hitler lookalike figurine sparks controversy (2011/09/27)

    A Hitler lookalike key ring and magnet on sale at 7-Eleven stores have drawn sharp criticism from the de facto Israeli embassy. The blogger who made the cartoon figure apologized but also defended his creation, saying he had no intention of promoting Nazi thinking.

    Mark Lee has made a name for himself with an online cartoon where office workers are often put under pressure by a mean boss. However, some people are concerned that, in his latest incarnation, the boss looks like Hitler. And the appearance of Hitler lookalike souvenirs in 7-Eleven convenience stores has sparked a controversy.

    To create the boss, I combined a large number of concepts. I think the boss is a dictator, and the first dictator I think of is the Nazis. The boss is very loyal to his money. So I put a lot of different ideas into this boss, including some Japanese military concepts.

    Lee emphasized that, unlike his boss, Hitler did not have bloodstained fangs, was not bald and was definitely not fat. But similarities, including the brown shirt and red armband with a small dollar sign, made the character too similar to the former Nazi leader.

    Hitler’s image used, either in a negative or a positive way, but used as a marketing aid or a message, is offending.

    Mark Lee

    Maybe my creation bothers some particular people. I regret this and apologize.

    In fact, Lee’s boss character has previously been seen in clothing similar to that of the Star Wars villain Darth Vader and even a Chinese emperor. He said the controversy this time took him completely by surprise.

    統一希特勒

    知名部落客畫家馬克,以一系列「五斗米靠腰」的職場漫畫,諷刺大老闆壓榨小小上班族,引發民眾熱烈迴響,不過有眼尖的民眾發現,大老闆留小鬍子、戴紅色臂章的造型,跟納粹德國希特勒很像,引發以色列駐台代表處反彈。馬克上午出面澄清,絕對沒有冒犯的意味,如果讓人不舒服,願意道歉。

    網路人氣畫家馬克,以大老闆壓榨上班族為題材創作,引發民眾共鳴,不過現在卻因為在便利商店販賣公仔,被特定人士質疑,大老闆的模樣跟希特勒有點像。

    [[知名部落客 馬克]]
    “老闆這個角色,我結合了很多概念,我覺得老闆是獨裁,獨裁第一個想倒是納粹,老闆對錢是很效忠的,所以我也加入了日本軍隊的概念,所以這個老闆,我結合了很多不同的概念”

    馬克強調,希特勒沒有獠牙,不是禿頭,更不是胖子,但手臂上這個紅色臂章,雖然大老闆配的是金錢的符號,但看在以色列代表眼裡,與納粹希特勒的相似度實在太高。

    “希特勒的影像,被用來不管是負面或正面的方式,但被使用來做行銷或訊息,就是一種冒犯”

    [[知名部落客 馬克]]
    “可能我的創作,對於一些特定人士,造成不舒服的感覺,我也感到非常難過跟抱歉”

    其實馬克這個大老闆,以前還有過星際戰士的黑武士、中國古代皇帝等造型,這回引發爭議,他始料未及。
