    GAPKids and Ellen Degeneres got generally favorable reviews when they debuted their gender-neutral line for young girls last summer. Everything seemed to be going well for GAPKids x ED until this weekend.

    Their newest campaign is centered around the mantra "girls can do anything."

    It features Le Petit Cirque, "the only all-kid humanitarian cirque company in the world," but no one seemed to care about that once the tweet with the new images surfaced.

    The campaign was met with major backlash because the only dancer of color featured was acting as an armrest for a white girl.

    Shoulda had a couple of the white girls on a couch, using the black girl as a footstool, just to see if it's possible to induce a heart attack or stroke.

    Then if they come back with "there is only one black girl in the ad, it's not enough" tell them they are 13% of the population and it is more than enough.

    Please understand that, if this image offends you, then you'd be doing the world a favor by killing yourself and any children you may have brought into existence.
