Taiwanese Restaurant Slammed for Naming Pasta Dish ‘Long Live Nazi Spaghetti’

nazi-dish

It looked like a simple pasta dish with German sausage, but then things got controversial. Rockmill restaurant in Taiwan thought it’d be a wonderful idea to serve up a dish called “Long Live Nazi Spaghetti.”

Manager Chao Ya-hsin told TVBS she didn’t think the dish would get so much attention. She was just trying to provide an easy way for customers to identify the dish as German. The Wall Street Journal reported that it was a popular dish over the last year and hadn’t received any complaints until a local station ran a story on it. After getting media attention, the complaints started pouring in as both Israeli and German representatives in Taiwan were outraged at the lack of sensitivity and understanding of the Holocaust.

Chao apologized and changed the name of the dish to “Long Live Purity.”

Reminds us of that one time “Holocaust Beer Pong” was unfortunately a thing.

Internet Finds Nazis on Parade Magazine’s Cover

When we look at it, we can pick out some cooking implements, an anchor, a few battleships thrown in for good measure. Navy stuff at its finest, right? Wrong. After Parade published the story on chefs in the military, Defense News blogger Christopher Cavas put the cover art on blast for featuring the silhouette of the famous Nazi battleship Bismarck. Take a second look at the cover:

Poor Parade magazine. They issued an apology explaining that the battleship was randomly chosen from a library of stock images, not a deliberate endorsement of Nazi military might, but let’s be real — this is the interwebz. You’re forever walking on eggshells here. Our advice to Parade: ignore the Führer furor, move on, and double check your cover art for tiny Nazis in the future. Good luck!
