Ellen DeGeneres' collaboration with Gap Kids is meant to be a campaign "encouraging girls to follow their passions." Girls can be DJs or breakdancers or wildlife photographers ... or even armrests?
That's the message a lot of social media users are getting because of this picture. In it, a tall white girl rests her arm on the head of the only person of color in the photo.
Social media users called the Gap Kids picture an epic marketing fail for essentially using the black girl as a prop while other girls show off their talents.
