Old Navy shared a too-cute image of an interracial family over the weekend, and some folks just couldn’t deal.

While there was nothing offensive about the smartly dressed trio, Old Navy was inundated with tweets from racist people who accused the clothing retailer of encouraging “white genocide.”

My family and I will never step into an @OldNavy store again. This miscegenation junk is rammed down our throats from every direction.

@OldNavy Absolutely disgusting. What’s next? Gender neutral bathrooms? Pedophilia acceptance propaganda?! Never shopping here again.

Once folk on Twitter caught wind of the vile tweets Old Navy was receiving they decided to show the brand some much-needed love.
@OldNavy Love the ad! Now please take some of your $ & build a time machine to send these knuckle dragging racists back to pre-1967 America

@OldNavy I think this is a beautiful family! Thank you for using them forth this ad. Sorry that you have to deal with ignorance.

Old Navy has yet to respond to the negative comments, but perhaps they don’t have to. They’ve already made their point by being so inclusive in their advertisements.
