Mum complains to supermarket for selling offensive Christmas card
A redheaded mum-of-three was “incensed” when she came across a Christmas card featuring Santa making a joke at the expense of ginger-haired children, reports the Daily Mail. The card, which was on sale at Tesco, pictured a ginger-haired child on Santa’s knee with the slogan “Santa loves all kids. Even ginger ones.”Davinia Philips, who has three young daughters with red hair, discovered the card at a Tesco branch in York. She complained to a member of staff, who removed it from sale. “I just don’t find it funny at all. My three girls are beautiful, and they were confused with the card. They asked why it didn’t just say, ‘Santa loves all kids.’ It’s quite upsetting.” A spokesman for Tesco confirmed the card had been withdrawn from its stores and apologised for causing offence. “We sell a large range of Christmas cards, including some which are intended to be humorous. It’s never our intention to offend any customer and we’re sorry if this card caused any upset.”
Bit naughty of Tesco,but you can't take offence.It's a joke,we all laugh at ginger hair,always have done,you can take life too seriously.
I've a ginger boy of my own and we've decided against hair dye
I am so pleased. I bought this card before they pulled it. Going to frame it and have it as a christmas decoration every year!!
Yeah lil sly of tesco-but very funny!!!!! I was gutted when Jc started turning blonde-he too was quite red at birth,was looking forward to a ginge
Gorgeous pic of Merlin Jo!!!!
Ta,Rach,he's looking very red in that one.We had a bit of a shock to have a ginge,but I don't think he'll keep it,seems to be going blonde now too.Didn't dye it,I promise.I will be sad if it does change now.
Wish I'd bought that card
