Wal-Mart Apologizes for Advertising ‘Fat Girl Costumes’ on its Website
Retail giant Wal-Mart caused a stir on Monday, after a listing for plus-size Halloween outfits appeared on its website under the heading "Fat Girl Costumes." The retail chain quickly backtracked, issuing an apology before changing the heading to "Women's Plus-Size Halloween Costumes." "This never should have been on our site. It's unacceptable, and we apologize," a spokesperson for the company said. "We are working to remove it as soon as possible and ensure this never happens again."
