The magazine tweeted out a photo of her father in his casket Monday -- but ultimately deleted it and apologized after backlash.
The original tweet had accompanied an article titled “Has Anybody Here Seen My Old Friend Martin?” The article details upcoming anniversaries of historical events in world history.
“Why, Newsweek? Wow.” Bernice King tweeted shortly after.
Newsweek later apologized for the “insensitive image."
Newsweek did not immediately respond to Fox News' requests for additional comment.
The article's title, “Has Anybody Here Seen My Old Friend Martin?” is a lyric from the 1960s song “Abraham, Martin and John,” paying tribute to assassinated Americans including King and Presidents Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy.
