Walmart Forced To Apologise After Selling Christmas Jumper That Shows Santa Doing Coke
The retailer had the items online, available to buy in Canada. On the one that caused offense, Santa had something in his hand, with the words 'LET IT SNOW' printed underneath him on the blue knitted top.
The description - get ready to cringe - reads: "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 take savor the moment when he gets his hands on some quality 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.
"It's exactly what he needs to get inspired for Christmas Eve. The men's Let It Snow Ugly Christmas Sweater captures that moment when Santa is finally ready to enjoy that sweet, imported snow.
"It's also warm and comfy, so you can wear it any time the snow starts blowing this holiday season."
The description reads: "Well, let's just say if you're going to zip around the world using flying reindeer to deliver gifts to millions of homes in a single night, you probably should expect some inquisitive aliens to eventually wonder how you can do it."
Another showed him with his pants down again in front of a fire, with the words 'Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire' embroidered near him, and another showed him sitting on the toilet.
The sweaters were being sold for about $37 (£28) and are made by clothing company Fun Wear.
A Walmart spokesperson told LADbible: "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 apologise for any unintended offence this may have caused."
The items don't appear to be available on the site at the time of writing.
