Chicago station WGN has apologized after using a holocaust image in a graphic for a Yom Kippur story. The holiday began at sundown Tuesday, and the image–the patch Nazis forced Jews to wear–aired as an over-the-shoulder (right) during the station’s 10 p.m. newscast.
Marc Kaplinsky took a photo of the graphic and asked on Twitter, “nobody thought that’s a bad choice of photo?”
As viewers shared their thoughts via social media, the station apologized:
We are truly sorry for inadvertently using an offensive image in our Yom Kippur story. We apologize and deeply regret the error.
