Someone over at The Home Depot is in a bit of trouble tonight. The retailer’s Twitter account posted a photo from ESPN’s College GameDay of three drummers in the Bucket Brigade, one of whom was dressed as a monkey, asking viewers to tell them which wasn’t like the others. The tweet immediately sparked controversy and was subsequently pulled. The company has issued multiple apologies on Twitter.

Regardless of intent, this is going to be a PR nightmare.
