Walmart pulls onesie after complaints garment was offensive to Indigenous people
Walmart Canada says it is pulling a onesie off its shelves after receiving complaints that said the garment was offensive to Indigenous people.
The onesie had the phrase ``I Still Live With My Parents'' written on it with illustrations of teepees and an arrow.
Walmart Canada says the graphic on the item does not represent its beliefs and has no place in its stores.
Some people took to Twitter saying the garment was offensive because Indigenous children disproportionately go to foster care.
Others suggested it was insensitive given Canada's history with residential schools.
Anika Malik, a spokeswoman for Walmart, says the company apologizes for any unintended offence.
The Niagara IceDogs accumulated 40 shots in a Friday road matchup in Mississauga but still fell 4-0. That sets up Saturday's home date with North Bay as the game of the year, with both teams in a statistical tie for fourth in the OHL's Eastern Conference.
Stephen Dhillon made 43 saves, including a season high 23 in the first, in an IceDogs 4-1 win over visiting Saginaw Thursday night. Kirill Maksimov scored a pair and added an assist against his former team, while Liam Ham, Ben Jones and Sam Miletic all had multi-point games.
On January 28th, the IceDogs were a shot away from a record setting third 3 in 3 weekend sweep but it was not to be, losing in a North Bay shootout. Since then, the team has gone winless in ten including a Monday afternoon overtime loss in Peterborough 4-3.
