Consumers Bashes Target For advertising New OCD (Obsessive Christmas Disorder) Sweater
|Will Anyone Sue Target For The Sweater?|
In the name of Christmas cheer, the mega-retailer printed a red sweater bearing the words “OCD: Obsessive Christmas Disorder” written across the chest and it has many on social media accusing the merchant of making light of obsessive-compulsive disorder.
On social media some have criticized the garment for trivializing the mental disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
OCD is a condition characterized by both obsessions and compulsions and affects more than two million American adults, according to the National Institute of Mental Health.
In light of the situation, a spokesperson for Target released the following statement: “We never want to disappoint our guests, and we apologize for any discomfort. We currently do not have plans to remove this sweater.”
Boo, @Target. You'll end up on the naughty list if you keep making light of illnesses like #OCD. pic.twitter.com/QERuaFK4OJ— Dani Poole (@DPoolePR) November 8, 2015
