Taiwanese Salon Finally Covers Swastika Logo
A Tawainese business, named 'Berlin Hair Salon', has finally covered swastika signs out the front of the store.
Owner Hsu Chen-yang originally defended the logo, and told EBC they were simply four razor blades and had no connection to the Nazi party.
He claimed people had urinated and defecated out the front of his store, and had been widely condemned by German and Jewish groups in the area.
"We are shocked and disgusted to hear that a barber shop in Hsinchu is openly displaying the Nazi symbol on its door sign," the German Institute Taipei wrote on its official Facebook on Tueaday.
"Displaying Nazi symbols for commercial use is an insult to the victims of the Holocaust! This institute appeals to the store manager to remove the Nazi symbols immediately."
Bowing to public pressure, Hsu covered the logo with black marker, and said he had contacted a designer about a new logo.
