A Whole Foods on the Upper West Side is under fire after the supermarket placed a chicken advertisement featuring the face of President Barack Obama.
NBC reports the ad was originally placed outside the Columbus Avenue and 97th Street location to promote a sale of organic chicken.
A resident voiced his concerns over what he said was a racist display, and the store removed the advertisement.
A Whole Foods spokesman said the store chucked the drawing "once it was brought to our attention by a shopper that it may be perceived as offensive."

This isn't the first time the president's likeness has been used in questionable fashion.
Outrage ensued when a restaurant named Obama Fried Chicken opened in China, featuring a picture of the president's face on top of the body of Colonel Sanders.
And in December, a Kentucky man defended a mannequin of the president eating a watermelon he had planted on his front yard, insisting the depiction was in no way racist.
