Shakira faces backlash for selling Nazi-like Necklace

Washington : Colombian sensation Shakira triggered a controversy in the midst of her El Dorado World Tour for selling a necklace which resembles a sun symbol used by the Nazis.
The necklace, a featured product for the singer's El Dorado tour, was first called out by German publication Bento. He noted a resemblance between the pendant and the Nazi Black Sun symbol.
The Black Sun was first used in a mosaic at the Wewelsburg Castle in Germany, which served as a home base for the SS party and Adolf Hitler's associate.
Shakira's tour company, Live Nation, took to Twitter and apologised for the same. They wrote, "some fans have expressed concern that the design bears an unintentional resemblance to Neo-Nazi imagery. We sincerely apologize for this inadvertent similarity and have permanently pulled the item from the tour collection." The 'Chantaje' singer kicked off her tour on June 3.
