Walmart Canada is apologizing for some ugly Christmas sweaters that were for sale on its website.
A spokesperson for Walmart said,
“These sweaters, sold by a third-party seller on Walmart.ca, do not represent Walmart’s values and have no place on our website. We have removed these products from our marketplace. We apologize for any unintended offence this may have caused.”
The retailer pulled the holiday outfit Saturday after they caused a stir with social media users.
The sweater showed Santa with three lines of a white substance along with the phrase “
“Let it snow.”
Walmart’s online description read,
“We all know how snow works. It’s white, powdery and the best snow comes straight from South America. That’s bad news for jolly old St. Nick, who lives far away in the North Pole. That’s why Santa really likes to savor the moment when he gets his hands on some quality, grade A, Colombian snow.”
