On Saturday, Walmart Canada pulled a polarizing Christmas sweater portraying Santa Claus as a coke fiend off its website. As The Global News describes it, the sweater depicted “a bug-eyed Saint Nick and three lines of a white substance that is heavily implied to be cocaine, along with the phrase, ‘Let it snow.'” Hardly shying away from the drug connection, the product’s online description read, “The best snow comes straight from South America. That’s bad news for jolly old St. Nick, who lives far away in the North Pole.” While some observers were offended by the sweater and its description, Zorina Baksh tweeted, “This is the best ugly Christmas sweater copy ever written.”
