The sillification of Hitler doesn't sit well with everybody. When news of the YouTube takedowns broke, a spokesman for the Anti-Defamation League told the Associated Press that he was "delighted".

Indeed, Holocaust survivor groups had previously complained about the Downfall videos for much the same reason. The trouble is that Hitler became a cartoon character a long time ago.
