“It was an unfortunate error"

“It was an unfortunate error on our part and we apologize,” Target spokesman Evan Miller said to ABC News, adding that the photo had been removed from Target’s website.

In case you missed it, you can find a copy of the photo on TIME or just about any other media outlet in existence, because it really was that bad.
