The post has amassed more than 200,000 comments and 88,000 reactions in just five days.

Controversy is swirling after a woman posted on Facebook Thursday and called a Hobby Lobby display "racist".

On Monday, Sept. 18, the "Cotton Stems in Glass Vase" item on Hobby Lobby's website was on sale for $15, marked down from $29.99. But a jar with cotton as decor??

The woman shared a photo of a cotton decoration on September 14, 2017 and said it is reminiscent of slavery and those who were forced to pick cotton. A commodity which was gained at the expense of African-American slaves.
