Walmart Santa sweater doing coke is pulled off Canadian website as retailer is forced to apologize after risque clothing item going viral on social media.
Who knew Santa did blow?
The retailer pulled the holiday outfit — along with several other risque seasonal sweaters — Saturday after the ‘choice’ item caused a stir with social media users, Global News Canada reported.
‘These sweaters, sold by a third-party seller on Walmart.ca, do not represent Walmart’s values and have no place on our website,’ a spokesperson told the outlet. ‘We have removed these products from our marketplace. We apologize for any unintended offense this may have caused.’

Re imagining Santa’s values:
The sweater showed Santa with three white lines on a table with the phrase ‘let it snow.’
But in the event there is confusion as to what the three white lines are suppose to depict a purported description reads as follows: ‘We all know how snow works. It’s white, powdery and the best snow comes straight from South America,’
Adding, ‘That’s bad news for jolly old St. Nick, who lives far away in the North Pole. That’s why Santa really likes to savor the moment when he gets his hands on some quality, grade A, Colombian snow.’
Other ’naughty’ items for sale depicted Father Christmas in compromising situations, including with his pants off — roasting his ‘chestnuts’ — in front of a fireplace.
The clothing items quickly made the rounds on social media, with shoppers expresing shock about Saint Nicholas’ antics.
‘EXCUSE ME HWAT, WALMART IS ADVERTISING COCAINE ON ITS CHRISTMAS SWEATERS,’ wrote one user.
Wrote another, ‘Damn Walmart was selling a sweater that had santa sniffing coke I’m mad I didnt see it I would’ve copped up.’
It remains unclear how Walmart came to sign off on the ‘after hours’ Santa items…
