American Apparel Racial Photoshop 'Fail' Explained (UPDATE, PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE: As it turns out, it was option #1. American Apparel confirms that the model was, indeed, wearing a bodysuit. An earlier version of this story incorrectly asserted that it was probably a Photoshop Fail. Case closed!

Previously:
Now that's what we call ethnically ambiguous.

In one of the stranger Photoshop Fails we've ever seen, American Apparel has digitally attached a white hand to a black model -- or a black stomach to a white model.

A zoomed-in product shot for the retailer's Poly-Viscose School Boy Pant (which has since been removed but was caught by Photoshop Disasters and Buzzfeed), the hand stuffed in the pants pocket is a blatantly different skin color than the midriff behind it. We can only think of three possible explanations:

1. The model is wearing a really dark brown mesh bodysuit.

2. This is one of American Apparel's attempt at sexy, with one model sticking her hand in another model's pants.

3. Photoshop Fail.
