What on earth were their merchandisers thinking in stocking this product?
Exactly when Halloween transformed into an excuse for adults to wear "sexy pirate" outfits may never be known, but Wal-Mart (WMT -0.48%) is now finding out that pushing "naughty" costumes for toddlers is going over as well as slipping razor blades into apples.
After complaints from parents, the retailer is pulling a costume called "Naughty Leopard" from its shelves, reports the Houston Chronicle. Some worried the outfit tapped into a "sex sells" strategy that sexualizes children.
What would you do if you saw a costume like this at your store?
