Newsweek deleted a photo it posted showing the remains of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. after outrage over the image.

King’s daughter Rev. Bernice King brought the matter to people’s attention with her post simply asking why.

Newsweek apologized without explaining why the photo was used.

The jarring image accompanied a synopsis of coverage from another outlet. The image does not appear with the original content, a piece on notable milestones including the 50th anniversaries of the deaths of King and Sen. Robert Kennedy, posted by the Council on Foreign Relations.

Newsweek posted this apology in response to Bernice King’s tweet.
