Home Depot takes action after racist tweet

NEW YORK — Home improvement retailer Home Depot Inc. on Thursday apologized for a tweet that showed a picture of two African-American drummers with a person in a gorilla mask in between them and asked: “Which drummer is not like the others?”

The tweet, from Home Depot’s official Twitter account, @HomeDepot, was part of a College Gameday college football promotion on ESPN.

Home Depot said Friday that it has fired the person and outside agency that was responsible for the tweet, but did not disclose their names.
