Walmart Apologizes for Sweater Featuring Santa with Cocaine

The retailer pulled the holiday outfit — along with several other risqué seasonal sweaters

It appears that Christmas is celebrated quite differently by our neighbors to the North — turns out “white powder” doesn’t mean snow…

According to a report, Walmart has apologized for an adults-only Christmas sweater on its Canadian website that appeared to depict Santa with cocaine. The retailer pulled the holiday outfit — along with several other risqué seasonal sweaters — Saturday after they caused a stir with social media users, Global News Canada reported.

“These sweaters, sold by a third-party seller on Walmart.ca, do not represent Walmart’s values and have no place on our website,” a spokesperson told the outlet. “We have removed these products from our marketplace. We apologize for any unintended offense this may have caused.”

The sweater showed Santa with three lines of a white substance along with the phrase “Let it snow.”
