Though they've revealed no further details about why a Junior's model featured on their website was bizarrely and shoddily photoshopped, Target told BuzzFeed that they're sorry about it. "This was an unfortunate error on our part and we apologize. We have removed the image from our website," they said in an email.
This latest Photoshop fail comes to us courtesy of Target and seems to demonstrate some weird new obsession with chopping out the crotches of young models.
Oh, please, please don't let this become a trend.
Target has made some "interesting" choices when it comes to size and body image on its websites in the past and this one isn't any better. This latest example comes courtesy of The Ethical Adman, who first spotted it. The "Xhilaration® Junior's Midkini 2-Piece Swimsuit -Leopard Print" featured on Target's website seems cute enough—until you look at the bottom of the suit. It looks like someone has crudely chopped out the crotch area with scissors. (The arm in front of her also seems insanely thinned and stretched out. There's also a piece of her hip missing next to it.)
