Walmart Canada has pulled a sweater they posted for sale on their website, which portrayed Santa with cocaine.
The company has released an apology after a handful of adult-themed “ugly” Christmas sweaters were posted for sale. “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 explained to Global News. “We have removed these products from our marketplace. We apologize for any unintended offence this may have caused.”

One of the sweaters, made by FUN Wear, portrays Santa sitting in front of three lines of a white powder, which is implied to be cocaine, alongside the words, “let it snow.”
“We all know how snow works. It’s white, powdery and the best snow comes straight from South America,” the product description read. “That’s bad news for jolly old St. Nick, who lives far away in the North Pole.”
