Home Depot is on the defensive after Tweeting a bizarrely racist photo to accompany a promo for College GameDay, which the corporate giant sponsors.
The home improvement retailer tweeted this image from its its official @HomeDepot account on Thursday, immediately raising eyebrows and backlash:
The caption: "Which drummer is not like the others?"
The company raced to delete the tweet, which it called "dumb," and subsequently apologized. Home Depot spokesman Stephen Holmes said:
"We’re also closely reviewing our social media procedures to determine how this could have happened, and how to ensure it never happens again."
