We’re going out on a limb here, but we’re guessing the multi-billion dollar retailer Walmart can afford to hire someone to edit the items sold on their website…
Wow…just wow!

Walmart was apologizing on Monday after an appalling description of a product by a third-party vendor made its way onto the retail giant’s website.

The retailer was slammed early Monday after the color of a netting weave cap — used as a protective layer between a person’s hair and sewn-in hair extensions — on its site was described as the color “N— Brown.”

Twitter user Kwani Luni tweeted a message about the wig color on WalMart’s website, asking them” @Walmart what are you doing?”

@Walmart replied to Kwani Lunis:

 

Shortly after the controversy erupted, Walmart removed the racial slur and replaced the “Add To Cart” button with a message stating that the item was no longer available.

A Walmart spokeswoman later apologized for the listing in a statement to The Post.

“We are very sorry and appalled that this third party seller listed their item with this description on our online marketplace,” spokeswoman Danit Marquardt wrote in a statement. “It is a clear violation of our policy, and has been removed, and we are investigating the seller to determine how this could have happened.” –NYP
