#News : Walmart apologizes after offering weaving net in 'n----r brown'



Walmart is apologizing after selling a product in the color “n----r brown.”

A weaving net for hair extensions offered on the big box store’s site was removed by Monday afternoon after Twitter users noticed the slur.

“Hey @Walmart what are you doing,” Kwani Lunis asked about the listing for a Jagazi Natural's Full Cap Weaving Net.

The n-word was featured both in the headline for the product as well as a description about it that praised its “characteristic and chic design.”

“We are very sorry and appalled that this third party seller listed their item with this description on our online marketplace,” Walmart said in a statement Monday.

“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.”
