After a slew of negative comments towards its app’s icon, Amazon has updated its zig-zag-patterned label above the mouth to a folded Post-It-style blue label.

With the label sitting above the “mouth” of the carboard-colored tile, many were quick to draw similarities to the dictator which could not be “unseen.” This update comes just shortly after the original design of the blue shopping cart and “amazon” text icon was changed for a more minimal look.

Check out below for what some of the comments over Twitter looked like.
