A New Jersey man wearing a Nazi uniform showed up at a US court for his child’s custody case. Strange, isn’t it?
But it has actually happened. Clad in a reportedly authentic Third Reich uniform, Heath Campbell, 40, arrived in a Flemington court to obtain visitation rights for his son.
Apparently, Heath Campbell is a huge Nazi admirer. He has Swastika tattoos on his neck and arms and also named his eldest son ‘Adolf Hitler’ Campbell. Previously, the Nazi-obsessed man made the headlines in 2008 when a supermarket objected to write the words ‘Adolf Hitler’ on a cake for Heath Campbell’s eldest son.
When Heath Campbell was asked whether his uniform would cause him trouble to win the case he had come to the court for, he replied, “I’m going to tell the judge I love my children. I wanna be a father, let me be it.”
But one doubts that since display of Nazi statements and signatures has long been considered as inappropriate in the U.S. and in several other countries.
Just last month, controversy sparked over JCPenney’s ‘Hitler Kettles.’ Images of the product on billboards caught the attention of motorists and one of them even posted it on Reddit. The department store was questioned regarding the controversial advertisements and their reply was that the resemblance was purely unintentional.
Following is a comparison photo of the ‘Hitler Kettle’ ad:
Heath Campbell’s trial is a developing story and the verdict has not yet been announced. The news about his Nazi-uniform has become the talk of the town and many people on the internet, especially Twitter, reckon that a man who named his son ‘Adolf Hitler’ is an unfit parent and must not be granted any visitation rights.
