Check out why the Walmart “Let it Snow” pullover has been removed from stores.
Retail giant Walmart has been forced to remove an item of clothing that was for sale throughout its Canadian stores. The piece in question was also available on the company’s website.
On the sweater, Santa Claus appears to be preparing to do lines of cocaine! The Walmart “Let it Snow” received complaints from consumers, who were either outraged or saw the funny side of the error.

Looking at the sweater, Father Christmas is sitting behind a table with three lines of a white substance on the table. Moreover, he is seen smiling and holding some sort of tube item. In addition, underneath reads the caption “Let it Snow”.

On Walmart’s Canadian website, the company offers a blurb for the product:
“We all know how snow works.
“It’s white, powdery and the best snow comes straight from South America. That’s bad news for jolly old St Nick, who lives far away in the North Pole.
“That’s why Santa really likes to savor the moment when he gets his hands on some quality, grade A, Colombian snow.”
In other words, the product description makes it clear this sweater is referencing cocaine. As a consequence, Walmart has been forced to remove the item and issue and apology. The retailer said the sweater was sold through a third-party.
A spokesman for the retail giant said: “These sweaters, sold by a third-party seller on Walmart.ca, do not represent Walmart’s values and have no place on our website.
“However, we have removed these products from our marketplace. We apologize for any unintended offence this may have caused.”
However, it is worth pointing out the Walmart Christmas sweater line includes an “adults” section. For example, there is a snowman with a carrot nose and two baubles between its legs. Furthermore, another shows Santa with his “roasting chestnuts” on a fire.
Consequently, Walmart removed all sweaters from its Canadian site.
