Walmart Under Fire After N-Word Used In Listing

SPREAD THE WORD:

Walmart comes under fire for listing that describes hair cap as "Nigger Brown" in color


Walmart has since apologized, calling the listing "appalling".

The mega-super store Walmart has found itself in hot water after a product on their website was listed as "Nigger Brown".

While it may seem photo-shopped, the listing was actually very real. The description of the product, which was a hair cap, also described the color as "Nigger Brown".

The listing on Walmart.com had the color described as "Nigger-Brown"
The original link to the listing even included the words "Nigger+Brown" in the URL of the Walmart listing. Walmart revised the title, but the description still read the offensive words. After changing the description, Walmart eventually removed the entire listing. They say they are currently investigating how this happened.

The words "Nigger Brown" even appeared in the Walmart.com URL, users shared on Twitter Monday.

Walmart responded to the heavy criticism and backlash, releasing this official statement on the matter and tweeting it out to frustrated users complaining about the listing:

Originally, Walmart called the error "appalling" and claimed it was due to a failure to screen a third party.


Apparently, this kind of improper screening that leads to products being released with not-so-favorable amenities is nothing new for Walmart. Last year, a mug that read "Got Hitler?" was being sold on Walmart.com before being taken down.
Walmart has not commented on whether the third party who is responsible has been terminated from working with Walmart stores after this incident. However, many people are saying that Walmart's words mean nothing unless action is taken to punish those responsible.
