Reich and Wrong: 'Man in the High Castle' Promo Offends After Showing Lady Liberty Giving Nazi Salute
It's the second year-in-a-row that the series has offended New Yorkers with its ads.
A Times Square billboard featuring the State of Liberty giving the Nazi salute is sparking outrage in the Big Apple.
It's an ad for latest season of Amazon’s The Man in the High Castle, a drama series that explores what would happen if the Nazis had won World War ll.
The billboard has gotten an especially unfavorable reaction Wednesday because December 7 marks the 75th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor that triggered America’s entry into WWII.
One onlooker near the billboard told Inside Edition: “It is pretty offensive, I think.”
“I can see people getting offended,” said another.
A female passerby told Inside Edition: “I think it is pretty terrible, I don’t know why they would do that.”
In a statement, Amazon says: "Season two of The Man in the High Castle, based on Philip K. Dick’s acclaimed novel, continues the journey into an imaginary, fictional world that explores the “what ifs” of an alternate history in which America lost World War II.
"Season two debuts December 16 and if you're interested to see what an alternate world could look like if history had gone another way, you should watch the show."
Last year the company sparked outrage when they covered a New York subway car with Nazi-inspired imagery to promote the show's launch.
The MTA pulled the subway ads after they were met with protests.
