To “Photoshop” images of models rocking the latest fashion trends to entice shoppers is commonplace in the fashion industry, but the retailer Target took things to a whole other level with some bikini photos.
In fact, the third-largest U.S. retailer went so far, an apology was issued.
Huffington Post reported on a pitiful attempt by Target to give a bikini model a “thigh gap,” presumably to make her legs look longer. Soon thereafter, Twitter users began calling the retailer out.
This tweet was captured by Twitchy:

Surprisingly, Target responded to the tweet by offering an apology:
@alissajones16 This was an unfortunate error on our part. We apologize and are working to address this issue on our site.

And “Alissa O” had plenty of company, as others found the crudely chopped up images offensive, as seen here:
