A bag has a bad font. According to some Twitter users the bag –
made by BelleChic and sold by Quotable Life – has a bad font. The font should say “I love glitter” but it says “I love Hitler. Not a smart font choice.
“BelleChic is still selling the tote, made by Quotable Life, on its website. (It’s currently marked down from $14 to $12.99.) However, as of Monday afternoon, the image of the bag looks a little different than the one that multiple Twitter users tweeted about on Sunday. “Glitter” is written in a new font, making the word much easier to read without mistaking it for the name of the world’s most infamous dictator” Teen vogue, 2017.)
Matt Molen, Chief Marketing Officer for BelleChic, responded to the backlash confirming that the original design had been pulled and the new product’s font has been updated.
“While I realize that most of the social media buzz and commentary has been tongue-in cheek, the type of abhorrent sentiment conveyed as part of the misinterpretation absolutely does not align with our company values, nor is it something we would ever want to encourage or support,” Molen told Allure. He also noted that BelleChic has been selling the product for over a year, and the company has never had issues with it before. This is why the apa, and mla say use a font that is easy to read. below are some tweets
