We thought this might've been a trick just in time for Halloween treats…
But Walmart TOTALLY labeled adult plus-size ensems as 'Fat Girl Costumes' on their website Monday — causing an uproar on Twitter and beyond.
The awful web marking was even a top trending topic on the social media site, prompting the retailer to take action and attempt to remove immediately.
Well today, a spokesperson for Walmart is coming out with an official "I'm sorry" for the online wording, confirming its existence and explaining:
Sure, Walmart has had a controversial and turbulent history, but they’re finally taking a step in the right direction!!
The largest U.S. private employer is officially extending healthcare benefits to workers’ same-sex partners, and we could not be more thrilled about it!
Due to the retailer’s incredibly large size, many now think that other employers will change their policies as well. Wallace Hopp, a researcher at University of Michigan, has noted:
This is so tragic!!!
A garment factory in Bangladesh collapsed on Wednesday morning, killing almost 90 people, injuring hundreds of others, and many of the 2,000 people who reported to work that day are still trapped beneath the rubble!
The 8-story building, located in a suburb near the capital city of Dhaka, exhibited signs of damage on Tuesday when several cracks were discovered, but employees were still told to report to work on Wednesday.
This particular disaster comes only 5 months after

Kellan Lutz needs to always be shirtless. For reals.
He and 30 Rock's Katrina Bowden stripped down to practically nothing for Op's Making Waves campaign, sold exclusively at Walmart, which is basically just a spread featuring two beautiful people wearing tiny little bathing suits as they do every day things like swimming, surfing, playing frisbee, biking, and so much more.
Honestly, Kellan could be sitting on a beach reading a newspaper as long as he has his shirt off!
Ahh, yes, he certainly is blessed, isn't he??
Take a look at more of the skin-baring shots (below)!
