Home Depot tweet for “College Game Day”

*The Home Depot is apologizing for a tweet the Atlanta-based retailer posted on Twitter for “College GameDay” that featured a person in a monkey suit sitting between two black drummers, with the caption: “Which drummer is not like the others?”

The tweet was blasted Thursday on Twitter as “racist” and “offensive” and later removed by the company.

Attempting damage control, the home and hardware store later tweeted: “We have zero tolerance for anything so stupid and offensive. Deeply sorry. We terminated agency and individual who posted it.”
