Target under fire for promoting its Annie clothing range with white models – when the new lead actress is black

Target launched a new kids clothing collection in August to coincide with the release of Annie, a film starring African American actress Quvenzhané Wallis

A Change.org petition has taken issue with Target’s use of predominantly white models to promote the clothing in-store

More than 3,000 people have signed the petition, which calls for the ads to be removed and an apology to be issued to Quvenzhané, 11

In a statement made to Daily Mail Online, Target said its idea to use Quvenzhané herself in the campaign ‘did not come to fruition’
