It’s the holiday season and people are rushing to buy this year’s ugly Christmas sweater to be ready.
One sweater that did not hit the mark with many people was one listed on Walmart’s website that depicted a Santa snorting cocaine. The sweater featured a Santa with three lines of white substance in front of him with the caption “Let it snow.”
The big-box retailer apologized for the adults-only Christmas sweater that was being sold on its Canadian website.
Walmart has apologized for an adults-only Christmas sweater on its Canadian website that appeared to depict Santa with cocaine, according to a report.
“These sweaters, sold by a third-party seller on Walmart.ca, do not represent Walmart’s values and have no place on our website,” a spokesperson told Global News Canada. “We have removed these products from our marketplace. We apologize for any unintended offense this may have caused.”
“We all know how snow works. It’s white, powdery and the best snow comes straight from South America,” the description of the sweater read. “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.”
