Customers furious after Walmart offers hair net in 'n--r brown'

It said in a statement it was "appalled that this third-party seller listed their item with this description on our online marketplace".

At first Walmart removed the word from the title of the product, but it could still be found in the item's details, where the color is listed. The company says the incident is a "clear violation" of its policies and is investigating the seller.

Comedian Travon Free, who is African-American and works as a staff writer on TBS" Full Frontal with Samanta Bee, weighed in on the controversy, quipping in a tweet that he and Walmart should "have a chat'.

By mid-day Monday, however, Walmart had pulled down the offending post.

Amazon and Walmart took some heat from customers after a third-party seller's racist color description of a hair weaving cap went viral. Others have criticized Walmart for passing the buck onto the third-party seller rather than taking total responsibility for what ended up on its website. "We woke up this morning to the news that someone has used our name JAGAZI to list an item". Only the black version of the cap appeared to be listed.

According to a report by CNN Money, "The cap was described as manufactured by Jagazi Naturals in the United Kingdom, but that company's owner said the product is a counterfeit version of hers and was sold by an unauthorized seller". Please be aware. Very sorry for all the distress this has caused. "It just doesn't make any sense".
