Home Depot’s Monkey Mishap

Home Depot made headlines on Nov. 7 for a racist tweet that showed a picture of two African-American drummers with a white person in a gorilla mask in between them and asked: "Which drummer is not like the others?" The tweet, an ESPN “College GameDay” ad, was immediately deleted. The next day Home Depot tweeted an apology, and the person responsible for the tweet was also fired.
