Walmart Item Color Described As “N-Word” Brown

The retail giant is facing major back lash for an item sold on their website.

Walmart is under fire for an item that was sold by a third party vendor on their website. Jaguzi’s Natural Wig Caps, had the color labeled as “N-Word” brown. Many were offended by the racial slur on the item that apparently the manufacturer was not aware of.

Walmart quickly worked to resolve the issue and released a statement,

We are very sorry and appalled that this third-party seller listed their item with this description on our online marketplace. 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.
