We have zero tolerance for anything so stupid and offensive. Deeply sorry. We terminated agency and individual who posted it.— The Home Depot (@HomeDepot) November 7, 2013
Home Depot apologized for a racist tweet, which showed a photo of two African-American drummers with a person in a gorilla mask between them and asked, “Which drummer is not like the others?” The tweet, part of a college football promotion on ESPN, has since been taken down. Home Depot said it fired the person and outside agency responsible for the post.
