The character Snoopy from Charles Schultz's comic strip Peanuts trended on Saturday after a tweet sent out from the @Snoopy account was misinterpreted as racist.
The tweet, that was meant to honor Black History Month, showed a picture of Charlie Brown and Franklin, the comic strip's first Black character. Charlie says to Franklin, "You're one of the good ones."
The tweet sparked an uproar that has yet to subside. The @Snoopy account was quick to delete the tweet and issue an apology.
"Earlier today a tweet from this account, featuring an image of two friends, was misinterpreted. As this was not the intended message of the post, it has been deleted so as not to perpetuate an inaccurate interpretation. The post was meant as a celebration of friendship."
