Not wanting to play devil advocat, but I'm guessing the people working in that journal are white as its a fact white people have harder time to differentiate black people. But even with that, its a big fail from them and its a very good thing they excused themselve afterward. Should alway double check your source when posting an article. :(

@Eden: Yeah, but how do you fuck up so badly? I suppose they have to use some sort of search engine to find a picture of Lukaku. What was the thought process of the author? "I need a picture of Lukaku, lemme just type in Stormzy"? Baffling.
