The Gap clothing store is apologizing for an advertisement after some said it was racist.

The ad is for Ellen DeGeneres' kids clothing line and features an older white girl placing her arm on top of an African-American girl's head.

Some have said the child is being used as a prop.

The Gap said they are replacing the image with a different photo.

Do you think the company was right in issuing an apology? Let us know on the WPTV Facebook page.
