ISTANBUL, Turkey, April 16 (UPI) -- Turkish officials said they have put a three-month suspension on a controversial TV ad using images of Adolf Hitler to sell shampoo.

The Turkish Industry Ministry's advertising commission decided last week to suspend the advertisement by shampoo brand Biomen due to concerns about gender discrimination and racist sentiments in the commercial, Today's Zaman reported Monday.

The commercial features footage of Hitler delivering a speech with subtitles giving a made-up translation to sell the "100 percent male shampoo."

"If you are not wearing a woman's dress, you should not use her shampoo, either," the subtitles read.
