Instructional website WikiHow is under fire for posting a white-washed cartoon of Jay Z, Beyoncé and Barack Obama on their website. The sketch is based on a picture of the superstars and former president taken during a 2012 fundraiser. The cartoon featuring White renditions of the African-Americans icons was used on an article titled, “How to become a congressman.”

WikiHow has already apologized for using the image, describing the cartoon as disgraceful. “When we saw the whitewashed image of Obama, Jay Z and Beyoncé, we were disgusted and ashamed. It never should have been on wikiHow,” a representative tweeted in regards to the controversy.

According to that same rep, the image was created in 2014 by a team of illustrators. “We learned it was made 3 years ago by a team of illustrators who work as one. One person sketches, the other person colors. The sketcher sent the colorist a black and white sketch. The colorist did not know the race of the models. The colorist wasn’t aware it was Obama and Beyoncé. We don’t think the illustrator intentionally whitewashed here. This doesn’t excuse the fact that we hosted a terrible image on wikiHow and we needed more diversity on that article period.”

Of course, there were some on Twitter not willing to accept that explanation.

The horrendous visual, which went viral earlier this week, shows three girls from Weber High School in Utah yelling the offensive phrase at the top of their lungs.

“We are shocked by the conduct of these students and the contents of the video,” Weber School District said in a statement of the 10 second video. “School officials have started an investigation and the matter is being taken very seriously.”

They added, “We are trying to determine when the video was made, where it was filmed, why the students would engage in such conduct, and how the clip ended up on social media.”

While folks around the nation are disgusted by the disturbing occurrence, some school officials might be defending the group of perceived racists teens.

The district confirmed that an IT guy is looking into the video to see if there was an original video that was put into an app to make a phrase play backwards.

So what could the girls possibly been saying? “Surgeon cuff.” Ummmm, because there’s nothing like yelling “surgeon cuff” in the middle of the day.

After watching the video: Do you think the girls are outright yelling “f*ck n*ggers?”
