Christmas-Themed Sweater Controversy

Target is stirring up some controversy with a new Christmas-themed sweater.

The store chain is advertising it as an ugly sweater and some customers on social media agree the message is truly ugly. The graphic on the front appears to make fun of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder; the design on Target’s website shows a green and red sweater, with the words OCD for Obsessive **Christmas Disorder.

Twitter user Kate Gannon Tweeted at Target saying the sweater isn’t cute or funny. She says OCD is a serious mental illness that shouldn’t be mocked.

However, in a statement to KELOLAND News, a Target spokesperson says they do not have plans to remove it from stores. They also tell us that Target isn’t the only place you can buy the controversial sweater.
