A Surrey, B.C. father wanted a summer dress for his five year old daughter. He landed on Walmart Canada website, searched “summer clothes for kids” and found this –
Unfortunate mix-up? Nope! Well maybe, but still absurd. Headline reads “Summer Style Children Dress Off Shoulder Dress Striped Dresses for Little Girls”. “Features” read – “has a design that is very sexy for little girls. Great for party, beach, festival etc. Suitable for girls aged 3 – 8. Stylish and unique design will make your kids more attractive.” WTF?
Surrey dad shocked after ‘sexy’ fishnet one-piece listed under kids’ section on Walmart website
Walmart declined to comment, but has since removed the item from their site.
Nothing surprises me anymore in this country
The company probably presented their promotion to Walmart using the description, then “switched” it in their ad. The usual bait and switch.
A “prank” by a disgruntled employee?
Hmm, not likely. I suspect the gaff was more along the line of corporate oversight (or lack thereof).
