Well, political correctness has reared its head yet again and Walmart has been forced to apologize for selling a holiday sweater that depicts Santa doing cocaine—wait, what?
Yes indeed, previously available on Walmart’s Canadian website, the sweater features a wide-eyed and clearly zoinked-out-of-his-mind Santa Claus about to dig in to several lines of coke and flanked by a pile of, erm, “snowballs.”
The words “LET IT SNOW” complete the look along with a sprinkling of blowflakes.
According to Lad Bible, the sweater was one of several in a line of intentionally offensive “ugly sweaters” created by a company called Fun Wear that has since been removed from the retail giant’s website.
How do you think Santa stays up all night, delivering toys all around the world? It’s the cocaina https://t.co/VgITRMTpOw

Other sweaters in the collection depicted Santa being anally probed by aliens and warming his “chestnuts” on a roaring fire.
The company has apologized telling Lad Bible:
“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.”
Lame! (OK, the sweaters actually do suck.)
