Nazi and Imperial Japanese symbols on public train cars in 2015—no one should be offended about that, right?

Rigggghhhhttttt...

Amazon has asked New York's public transit to remove an ad campaign promoting the company's new alternate history TV series The Man in the High Castle after severe backlash from the public, according to Mashable.

The campaign, meant to show what a train car would look like if the United States lost WWII, used Nazi emblems and Japanese Imperial imagery on seats.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio has called the ads offensive.

"While these ads technically may be within MTA guidelines, they're irresponsible and offensive to World War II and Holocaust survivors, their families, and countless other New Yorkers," he said in a statement.

"Amazon should take them down."
