Walmart Canada Responds

Walmart Canada responded by trying to deflect blame, instead saying a third party seller was selling the shirts.

“This item is sold and shipped by a third party seller,” the company said in a statement. We’ve forwarded your comments to the appropriate department to look into further. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.”

However, this did nothing to stop the backlash, so Walmart later released a lengthier statement.
