    Walmart Apologized After Putting Out A Christmas Sweater That Had Drug References On It

    This is supposed to be boughs of holly, Santa!

    Though December is the time to get into the holiday spirit, I think this Christmas sweater that Walmart put up on its site (and has since taken down) solicited a different type of holiday cheer.

    The sweater in question featured an image of Santa Claus sitting at a table with three white lines in front of him — lines people on Twitter think is cocaine.

    Yall. Look at this description for this Christmas sweater from Walmart

    “We all know how snow works. It’s white, powdery and the best snow comes straight from South America,” read the product description on Walmart’s website. “That’s bad news for jolly old St. Nick, who lives far away in the North Pole.”

    Ummm....excuse me?

    Walmart, we gotta talk. Because this has "hell nah" written all over it.

    Y'all...this description?! Santa using grade-A, Colombian snow?! Who wrote this?!

    People on twitter were confused...like this person who wasn't understanding what was happening:

    EXCUSE ME HWAT, WALMART IS ADVERTISING COCAINE ON ITS CHRISTMAS SWEATERS

    After the sweater was criticized on social media, Walmart issued an apology. “These sweaters, sold by a third-party seller on Walmart.ca, do not represent Walmart’s values and have no place on our website,” the statement said.

    And if you hypothetically liked the sweater, too bad. “We have removed these products from our marketplace. We apologize for any unintended offense this may have caused.” Maybe next Christmas!
