NBC reports that Walmart is under fire for allegedly listing “cow” as a women’s clothing size. A lady named G’Nadine Grant from Miami went to the retailer’s website looking for a plus size ugly Christmas sweater. Grant searched “plus size ugly Christmas sweaters for women” on the site and she claims the website listed the following sizes: 3X, 4X, 2xxl and “cow.”
Walmart spokesperson Carrie McKnight told NBC, “In this instance, the customer had searched for a plus sized cow ugly Christmas sweater. And that’s how that word got up there. It is in no way a descriptor of a size. It is just a sweater. A cow sweater that somebody had searched before.” However, McKnight said she understands how the glitch is confusing.
When you watch NBC’s video, you can see that “cow” was clearly listed as a size. It also appears, upon searching for “plus size ugly Christmas sweaters for women” on Walmart’s site, that the issue has been rectified.
