(Scroll down for video) U.S. home improvement giant Home Depot was slammed after posting a picture to Twitter showing two black people drumming alongside a monkey.

The retailer tweeted the major offensive photo on their official account @HomeDepot on Thursday, accompanied by a promo for College GameDay.

The company was quick to delete the tweet, which it called dumb, and later apologized.

"We have zero tolerance for something as stupid and offensive,” Home Depot tweeted. The company assured customers that both the marketing agency and the person who posted the tweet, were fired, but it did not disclose the name of the agency.

"We are also closely reviewing social communication procedures to determine how this could have happened, and how to make sure that it does not happen again," Home Depot spokesperson Stephen Holmes said in a statement.

A man was jailed after he beat his 3-year-old nephew to death because he wet his bed, according to court proceedings in the United Kingdom.

The man has been found guilty of murder after leaving the child with injuries resembling those caused by a car accident.

Ben Igbinedion, 44, of Bromley, south London, denied the charges, but was convicted after a two-week trial by an Old Bailey jury.

Daniel Evbuomwan was a child in normal physical health, but all that changed dramatically when he went to live with Igbinedion and his family in March of this year, the court heard .

On the morning of March 2, he was rushed to University Hospital in Lewisham, southeast London, where he was pronounced dead at 11:25 a.m.

He was found to have suffered multiple rib injuries and multiple fractures to the pelvis.

"Daniel has undergone major trauma that is usually seen in car accident victims. He suffered injuries to the chest and abdomen," prosecutors told the court.

“He beat the child because he wet the bed he shared with the defendant,” the court was told.

Igbinedion is due to be sentenced later this month.

(Scroll down for video) Four people have been arrested by authorities after they tortured a man because he buried cash in the desert, according to a statement released by the Federal Bureau of Investigations.

The four people were charged with kidnapping a California marijuana dispensary owner, torturing him with a blowtorch and cutting off his penis during a robbery because they thought he was burying mountains of cash in the desert.

Local police arrested Ryan Anthony Kevorkian, 34, and Naomi Josette Kevorkian, 33, on Friday, in Fresno, California, just a day after the FBI arrested 34-year-old Hossein Nayeri in Prague, in the Czech Republic.

Nayeri will be extradited to the U.S.

Another man, Kyle Shirakawa Handley, 34, was arrested in October for the incident.

The four have been charged with kidnapping, aggravated chaos, torture, robbery and inflicting serious bodily injury. They were held without bail and could face up to life in prison without parole if convicted, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors said the victim owned a thriving medical marijuana dispensary, and he treated some of his marijuana providers, including Handley, to a Las Vegas vacation.

After the trip, Handley told friends that the dispensary owner was very rich, and he came up with a plan to kidnap and rob him.

The four began following the victim and they saw him going out to the desert. The suspects erroneously believed that the victim was burying his cash.

The four kidnapped the victim and brought him out to the desert. When he refused to give up the location of the cash they tortured him and cut off his penis before dumping him at the side of the road.

The victim survived.

A man said that he is angry after he found his windshield broken.

He was even more disgusted when he found a used condom, which was filled with a man’s semen.

The used condom apparently shattered the car’s windshield after it was thrown out of a window from a building in the east of China.

The car owner immediately called the police when he found the condom on his windshield wiper near the smashed window.

To make matters worse, the man will have to pay about one thousand yuan ($160) to repair the window.

The man has parked his car in the city of Zhejiang, when the contraceptive hit his vehicle.

The condom is believed to have been thrown from a window of a tall residential building nearby.

No one was injured in the incident.

Forensic experts now have a DNA sample to identify the culprit.

(Scroll down for video) A man was beaten and buried while he was unconscious.

Luckily for him, someone noticed the sand of the freshly covered grave moving.


The video, which was uploaded to the Internet, showed the victim being pulled alive from the grave.

The man was seen lying semi-conscious in the grave, and most of his body was still covered with sand.

Emergency workers were seen removing sand from his mouth, face and body.

The incident came to light after a woman heard noises coming from under the ground.

The woman was visiting a grave at a cemetery in the suburb of Ferraz de Vasconcelos, in Sao Paulo, Brazil, when she heard noises. As she walked closer to the grave, she saw something moving.

The horrified woman said that it was like a scene straight out of a horror movie, in which the buried man was moving his arms in an attempt to escape the grave.

According to reports, police did not believe the woman when she called and asked for help, instead, she convinced a cemetery worker to come and see for himself.

Paramedics finally managed to pull the man out of the grave and placed him on the grass nearby, where they treated him before he was transported to a hospital where he is recovering.

It is believed that the man had been thrown into the empty grave by the people who beat him up during a fight.
