"Hitler" fried chicken better surrender its logo, because the Colonel's ready to f!ght.

Kentucky Fried Chicken told The Huffington Post Friday it may take "legal action" against a fried chicken shop named Hitler that sports a storefront emblem very similar to KFC's, only with Adolf Hitler's head replacing Colonel Sanders.

"We find it extremely distasteful and are considering legal action since it is an infringement of our brand trademark and has nothing to do with us," a spokesman for KFC parent Yum! told The Huffington Post in an email.

Hitler, which recently opened in Bangkok, Thailand, first garnered attention after Andrew Spooner, author of the "Footprint Thailand Handbook," snapped a photo of the restaurant and tweeted it out in May:
*tweet embedded
Alan Robertson, 43, who lives in Bangkok, told The Daily Mail the chicken was "pretty good" and said a server told him the proprietors thought Hitler was a "good image."

The restaurant appears to be an outcrop of what CNN recently dubbed "Hitler chic," a new trend in which pop culture icons are recreated to resemble the former Nazi leader

Making fun of someone is still bringing attention to someone. When you think you're being funny (youre not) the symbolism/hatred that Hitler represents doesn't warrant any recognition.
Try doing that Nazi salute around some people with family who lost relatives in the holocaust. Matter of fact, there are some WWII vets who would probably break your arm for doing some ignorant ish.

Don't let some racist capitalists hide their agenda by dressing it up a farce. There is NOTHING cool about Hitler.
