Christmas Sweaters at Walmart Featured Santa With Cocaine
Boy is Walmart sorry. The mega-retailer is issuing a major apology for making available a Christmas sweater with an apparent drug reference.
The sweater in question featured the words "Let it snow" and includes three white lines in front of Santa. The sweater was sold online in Canada by a third-party vendor and it has been removed.
Before you go thinking it was just an innocent graphic error, you may want to read the description that went along with the product. The product was listed as "Men's Ugly Sweater", the enticing description read,
“We all know how snow works. It’s white and powdery and the best snow comes straight from South America,” read the display copy. “Santa really likes to savor the moment when he gets his hands on some grade A, Colombian snow. He packs it in perfect lines on his coffee table and then takes a big whiff to smell the high-quality aroma of the snow.”
Also removed by Walmart, and not to be outdone by drug-addicted Santa, other sweaters included one showing Mrs. Claus and a de-pantsed Santa in a BDSM pose, captioned “Santa has been naughty”, and Father Christmas in compromising situations, including with his pants off, roasting his “chestnuts” in front of a fireplace.
The sweater did not appear to be available as of Sunday night. Walmart declined to comment further on Sunday, and many are left disappointed they didn't score the limited edition offensive festive attire (even though they're easily found on Amazon). Merry Christmas.
