OK, something isn't right here.

Target is under fire for a freakishly unusual image of a model that was photoshopped into oblivion.

From chunks of thigh that were noticeably not where they would normally be, to shrunken and missing crotches, as well as super elongated arms, the images of these over-edited models had the online community asking why Target would post such oddly edited photos of women who are already very thin.

One Twitter post to the brand read: "Hey @Target how about you check your Photoshop before putting online ... clearly this is wrong."

"Your Photoshop skills are awful and desperation for a thigh gap is disgusting," was the response of another customer's tweet to the brand.

Ouch! Target responded to the critiques by issuing an apology. "This was an unfortunate error on our part and we apologize," the company said.

This isn't the brand's first rodeo, however, when it comes to having poor taste in how it's models are sometimes portrayed.

Last year, Target got into hot water for calling the color of a plus-sized dress "manatee gray," even though the same fabric was dubbed "dark heather grey" in their regular sizes. And just this year in January, Target also used a photo of a pregnant woman to promote a plus-sized dress. Oy vey!

To make light of the bad Photoshop editing, the model that fell victim to the botched job appeared on Ellen and poked fun at the ad in a really funny way. Check out the video below and let us know what you think.
