Microsoft has apologized for pasting a white man’s head onto a black man’s body in a photograph for it’s official website.

The original photo featured a white man, an asian and a black man who were attending a meeting, which was published on Microsoft’s main U.S. site. However, on a version aimed to appeal to Polish customers, the black man’s face was replaced with a white man’s.

Microsoft later apologized on it’s official Twitter feed.

“Marketing site photo mistake – sincere apologies – we’re in the process of taking down the image,” it tweeted.

An official spokesman added: “We are looking into the details of this situation.”
