Walmart has removed a mug from its website after numerous shoppers reported it as “appalling” and “offensive.”
The black and white coffee mug was posted to the retail giant’s site with the message “Got Retard?” on it.
After numerous complaints, and a Change.org petition asking the company to stop selling the mug, Walmart said it had the item from a third-party seller “removed from the site as soon as we were informed.”
“This item violated our policy and we quickly removed it,” Walmart said in a statement on Twitter. “It’s unacceptable a seller put it on our Marketplace.”
