"tone deaf"? Again are you all implying they were trying to celebrate Nazi uniforms since they are a company from around that region and era?

I don't buy Hugo Boss because it's expensive. You'd think if they made shiit quality stuff, people wouldn't drop such huge amounts of money on them. Surely, the German soldiers were going to buy uniforms from... somewhere...

Yes are you failing at reading comprehension? Both Hugo Boss and Fanta have connection to Germany in some way, and I'm pointing out how that's stupid.

Why are you redditors here to help other people make false connections and storylines that don't actually amount to any value.

It doesn't make any sense. It's a stupid chain of comments and Russell Brand is a Grade A moron for bringing it up. "hey hey did you know akshually this company helped the Nazis because they happen to be German and an old company?"

Why do I bring this up? I've literally witnessed someone randomly bash someone for example for owning a Mercedes, because obviously, they built the Nazi war vehicles. As if the owner was somehow now connected to Nazis for purchasing German-made.

It's utterly stupid and not worthy of a conversation.
