'Durable Stretchy Weaving Net Weaving Cap Wig Cap Size M (N*****-brown)'
The offensive term was also repeated in the description section beneath a photo showing a mannequin with the brown, lacy cap on its head. The merchandise, a weaving net used for hair extensions retailed under the brand Jagazi Naturals, was being sold by a third party on the Walmart’s site for $7.28. Walmart issued an apology and removed the item form the site.
By Monday, as outrage over the slur spread on social media, the weave cap had been removed and Walmart apologized on its Tweeter account, at the same time blaming a third party in all the problems:
“We are very sorry and appalled that third party seller listed their item with this description on our online marketplace. It is a clear violation of our policy and has been removed, and we are investigating the seller to determine how this could have happened.”
Jagazi Naturals posted a statement on its website addressing the flap over the wig cap and claiming that someone had hijacked their brand to hawk a fake version of their weave net.
'The real JAGAZI is a 100% black company for black people. People have often used our brand name to try and sell their fake products. Please be aware. Very sorry for all the distress this has caused. We are feeling the pain here as well. Most shocking!'
