MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A product listed on Walmart Marketplace contained a racial slur in its description.
Walmart removed the listing after WMC Action News 5 contacted the company. However, the racial slur still appears when someone searches for the product on Google.
Walmart released the following statement:
The product was Jagazi Natural's Full Cap Weaving Net. The brown color option was listed with the description "N*****-Brown."
Jagazi released a statement on its website saying it was not responsible for the post either.
Walmart Marketplace is a location where non-Walmart vendors can list their products for sale. The products are not Walmart products and are not sold in Walmart stores.
