"We are very sorry and appalled that this third party seller listed their item with this description on our online marketplace", the retailer tweeted in response.

The retail giant quickly removed the item and issued a statement of apology.

As the New York Post noted, Walmart passed the blame to a third party seller that had actually written the description which ended up on its website.

The retailer was slammed early Monday after the color of a netting weave cap - used as a protective layer between a person's hair and sewn-in hair extensions - on its site was described as the color "N- Brown". "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", writes Director or Corporate Communications Danit Marquardt.

We take it the seller will be banned from Walmart moving forward, right?

By Monday morning the term had also been removed from the details portion of the listing, and the item itself was no longer available.

"Considering the fact that I'm a black woman from Nigeria, what really pains me is that I get these emails from other black people who are in pain because of that word", she said.

"We're very sorry for all the distress this has caused". "It just doesn't make any sense".
