From the Associated Press via

A German cartoonist has apologized for causing offense by depicting Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg as a hooked-nose octopus, after Jewish groups complained it resembled Nazi propaganda. 

Cartoonist Burkhard Mohr says he had intended to make a point about Facebook devouring rival WhatsApp and didn't realize the parallels to the Nazis' anti-Semitic portrayal of Jews as hungry tentacle monsters.
