Apparel maker Gap has apologized for an image used in an ad that some critics (i.e. ‘Black Twitter’) felt was racially insensitive.
The ad in question depicts four young girls that are part of Le Petit Cirque, a traveling circus company that features boys and girls between the ages of 5 to 14. In the image, an African-American girl is posing next to a taller Caucasian girl that is propping her arm on the younger girl’s head.
Twitter commenters were quick to pounce… with many claiming the ad cast the black child as merely “an armrest.”
