NEW YORK — Following public outcry, Amazon is removing subway ads for its new series, “The Man in the High Castle,” which wrapped New York subway seats with iconography from Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan, NBC 4 New York reported.

Amazon made the decision to pull the ads amid widespread coverage of the wrap, which cover half the 42nd Street shuttle's seats in decals of the American flag with the stars replaced by an emblem that closely resembles the Nazi Reichsadler, the heraldic eagle used by the Third Reich. The other side features a recreation of a World War II-era Japanese flag in red, white and blue. For the full story, click here.
