Soooooo Home Depot tweet. Racist? (spoiler: yes, yes it is)

Meh. I don't see it. Home Depot probably should have used a clown just to be safe, though.

The guy that tweeted this is the opposite of racist. He didn't even consider it could be seen as racist by others.He saw three drummers and one in a gorilla costume and thought of a line to put with it. The race of the drummers probably never even entered his mind.  He didn't take into account how racism obsessed and easily offended people are these days.

I wonder who is behind the mask and behind the camera? Do we know if they are white or black?

I'm with Zod here... either the person that tweeted that is the biggest racist ever and didn't give a crap about their job or they literally just didn't even think of the racial aspects of the picture and posted away...

 

As PhillyB said, obviously in a position like that, you should consider the social aspects of what you post, but I seriously doubt it was done maliciously.

 

Either way, pretty sure Home Depot has a new person running their twitter account now...
