The INSIDER Summary:
- Belle Chic, an online retailer, is under fire for selling a bag that looks like it says “My favorite color is Hitler.”
- The bag actually said “My favorite color is glitter.”
- This horrifying misprint is the result of bad font choice.
- People were not happy.
- Belle Chic pulled the bag and re-released it using a different font.
The fashion world certainly has its fair share of controversies.
Belle Chic, an online retailer, found itself at the center of the drama on July 23 when a poor font choice transformed a tote bag from girly to problematic.
Because the designer used an illegible script font, it looked like a tote bag sold by Belle Chic said “My favorite color is Hitler” instead of “My favorite color is glitter.”
A picture of the bag went viral, and, needless to say, the internet had a lot of thoughts about it.
Some people were confused about how this happened.

I assume it’s a disastrous font choice for “glitter”.
