Hulu is under fire for promoting a new docuseries about Breonna Taylor on the same day that it was revealed that the police officers responsible for her death would not be directly charged for the fatal shooting.

On Wednesday, the streaming service started the promotion of the FX docuseries titled, The New York Times Presents: The Killing of Breonna Taylor. Critics say HULU was being blatantly insensitive by promoting the series on the same day, causing the Disney-owned company to withdraw the promotion and offer an apology, according to The New York Daily News.

The streaming company posted an apology on its Twitter account.

The original now-deleted post with the trailer, read: “Breonna Taylor’s life was changing. Then the police came to her door,” the tweet read. “#NYTPresents: The Killings of Breonna Taylor traces the missteps of the deadly raid. #FXonHulu.”

One particular Twitter user was disgusted by the promotion.

Yet, another gave a different perspective.

Former Louisville police officer Brett Hankison was indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment in the first degree, defined as exhibiting extreme indifference to human life for firing shots into a neighboring apartment.
