A student-run magazine at Harvard has apologized for printing an offensive image with Anne Frank's face super-imposed of Heidi Montag's post-plastic surgery body.
The image published in The Harvard Lampoon over the weekend sparked outrage on social media as it was condemned as offensive and anti-Semitic for trivializing the Holocaust.
The poorly-Photoshopped image was run with the headline: 'Gone Before Her Time: Virtual Aging Technology Shows Us What Anne Frank Would Have Looked Life if She Hadn't Died.'
Under the picture were the words: 'Add this to your list of reasons the Holocaust sucked.'
The Harvard Lampoon sparked outrage by publishing an image with Anne Frank's face superimposed over the post-plastic surgery, bikini-clad body of reality star Heidi Montag
The original photograph of Frank, taken when she was just 11 years old in 1942, is shown above
The Lampoon was accused of hyper-sexualizing Frank by putting her head on the body of reality TV star Montag, who was photographed in a skimpy swimsuit in Las Vegas in 2010
The Lampoon's co-presidents and issue editor released a statement responding to the backlash, in which they took responsibility for the misguided attempt at humor
