Remember the little boy whose name was so offensive that a supermarket refused to put it on his birthday cake? Well, it looks like the parents of Adolf Hitler Campbell attracted a little too much attention to little Adolf and his two Nazi-named sister. New Jersey’s Division of Youth and Family Services placed the children in state custody last week. State officials aren’t saying why, but here’s the best guess of a psychologist who talked with FOXNews.com:

Forensic psychologist N.G. Berrill said naming a boy Hitler could be considered child abuse.

“Part of it is the infantile nature of the parents’ behavior,” Berrill said. “You can name your dog something weird, but they think they’re making some kind of bold statement with the children, not appreciating that the children will have separate lives and will be looked at in a negative light until they’re able to change their name. It is abuse.”
