The Jagazi Natural's accessory was sold by Pixnor on Walmart.com and by ThinkCreators on Amazon in a color described as "n-- brown", which The New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow caught wind of in the early hours of Monday, July 17. The company that sells and ships the caps to Walmart is Pixnor.

Walmart initially removed the offensive word from the title of the product, but it remained in the item's details, where the color is listed. But Twitter users noted that the offensive description was still listed further down on the page.

Suspected LeT terrorist held in Mumbai
(Web Desk) - An alleged Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militant' has on Monday been arrested from Mumbai according to the Indian media. It is alleged that he has been involved in anti-national activities for the last 10 years and may be even more than that.

Answering the call is Walmart's Director of National Media Relations, Ragan Dickens. The U.K. company posted a statement on their website Monday claiming that someone else used the name to list the item.

A spokesperson for Walmart said the item was removed, as it was a violation of their policy.

"We are very sorry and appalled that this third-party seller listed their item with this description on our online marketplace", Danit Marquardt, a Walmart spokeswoman, said.
