Hallmark Apologizes For Selling Chanukah Paper That Looks Like Swastikas
Also, can we please settle on a spelling of Chanukah, also of Hanukkah.
According to Hallmark, the wrapping paper was pulled from store shelves after the company received a complaint on Sunday night from a Walgreen’s customer in California, who noticed the pattern seemed to contain swastikas. By Monday, Hallmark had already recalled the paper, and issued an apology…
“We apologize for the oversight and apologize to anyone who was offended. That obviously was not our intent,” Hallmark spokeswoman Julie Elliott told the Kansas City Star. “It was an oversight on our part to not notice the intersecting lines that could be seen as a swastika pattern.”[su_csky_ad]
