    A popular Colombian singer reportedly had to reconsider her merchandising after some fans called her out on allegedly peddling paraphernalia adorned with a suspicious emblem.

    A number of fans of Colombian pop star Shakira criticized the singer over a necklace she was selling during her El Dorado World Tour, The Sun reports.

    The disgruntled fans claimed that the symbol depicted on the necklaces bore a striking resemblance to "the black sun" – an occult and esoteric symbol featured in a floor mosaic at the Wewelsburg Castle, which served as a prominent SS facility in Nazi Germany.

    ​According to the newspaper, Shakira’s tour promoter apologized for this development and halted the sale of the necklace, noting, however, that its design "was based on pre-Colombian imagery."
