I don't think he looks like an ape, but the imagery of the photo either consciously or unconsciously recalls the image of King Kong gripping the white woman. His face and body language look menacing, almost dangerous, compared to Giselle. It was really a poor choice for a picture and it doesn't look like the same photshoot. As others have said, if it was a sports photo in another context, like on a basketball court or something, the yelling and aggression would seem more appropriate, but not here.
