Target retouches teen bikini model photo to create unfortunately enhanced 'thigh gap,' apologizes

Target is facing backlash after shoppers noticed a poorly retouched photo of a model wearing a juniors' bikini.

The retailer apologized Tuesday, saying "This was an unfortunate error on our part and we apologize. We have removed the image from our website," according to Buzzfeed.

The photo in question shows a young woman in a white leopard bikini. The photo was retouched to crop out a section of the model's crotch area. It appears as though her left arm was thinned and lengthened. Her armpit and hip were clipped where the model's torso was thinned.
