Philipp reports that Google has pulled the special Roald Dahl Logo after few hours of placement. Google has put up a special Roald Dahl logo to celebrate the birthday of the author of works like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach on last Thursday.

Google released a statement saying —”Google has decided to remove its Doodle of Roald Dahl based on user concerns.”

There’s no explanation of what the user concerns actually were, but the New York Sun speculates that it might have been due to allegations that Roald Dahl was anti-semitic, and that the timing of the logo also coincided with Jewish holiday Rosh Hashanah which started at sundown the day before.
