Owner of Jagazi Natural, Chizo Onuh, has come under fire for the precarious name she called one of her products she has been selling on Walmart’s online store.
Onuh the London based Nigerian entrepreneur describing the shade of one of her weaving hair nets for wigs as “nigger brown” caused an uproar on social media when some Walmart customers noticed the description.
Walmart has since apologised for allowing the racial slur on their website and have promised to investigate the third party seller who used the description on their site.
“We are very sorry and appalled that this third party seller listed their item with this description on our online marketplace,” Walmart said in a statement Monday.
“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.”
