A Chicago news station accidentally made a Holocaust reference during a Yom Kippur report.

A news station in Chicago has apologized after using an offensive graphic in a report Tuesday night about Yom Kippur.

The station, WGN News, accompanied a special Yom Kippur report with an image of yellow badge the Nazis forced the Jews to wear during the 1940s. 

The accidental Holocaust reference quickly gained attention.

Understandably, people were shocked and/or offended by the mistake:

"We are truly sorry for inadvertently using an offensive image in our Yom Kippur story," the station said on Facebook. "We apologize and deeply regret the error."

Twitter user @mikaelajannae suggested the error might cost someone his or her job.
