A few observant Wheel of Fortune fans caught a big blunder during the show’s “Southern Charm” series, which aired last week. It appeared that in the background of the long-running game show were images of slaves standing in front of an antebellum, plantation style home. 

Viewers quickly took to Twitter to express their outrage at the use of the imagery.

Wheel of Fortune has apologized for the use of the backdrop and promised to omit the image from future broadcasts of the show.
