Kmart Pulls Festive "Merry Ham-Mas" Bag From Shelves Over Outrage: "We got it wrong"
This story is bacon me crazy! To the people reading this, this story may be no pig deal. But to some of the uncultured swine in the world, this has got Kmart looking like no Ein-swine.
Kmart stores in Australia have yanked a Christmas-themed bag with “Merry Ham-Mas” on it after it sparked outrage for resembling Hamas, according to The New York Post.
In other news, there are still some Kmarts in existence in the world.
The festive bag, which is intended to store ham in the fridge, first drew outrage from the Australian Jewish Association because they obviously didn't find it ham-using.
“K-MART STUFF-UP! Check out the special Christmas bag currently available via Kmart online. Yes, it’s real!!” the group wrote on X, with an attached image of the $4 festive tote.
Let’s just say Kmart was a bit too ham-bitious with this one.
“Although this is potentially funny, it's really not a good look. We suspect some product managers may cause the company some embarrassment. So we’ve politely written to Wesfarmers corporate suggesting the product be pulled,” they added.
Kmart is no ham-ateur. Many people enjoy ham on Christmas and marketing decisions for the holiday are made far in advance. It is clear the decision to make such a bag was made long before the Oct. 7 ham-bush on Israel.
Kmart later apologized as it was likely they had ham-nesia about the connection between Christmas ham and a terrorist organization that does not eat ham.
“We got it wrong on this occasion, and we apologize unreservedly,” a company spokesperson told Politico. “When designing this product we clearly didn’t think through all the implications and the product has been removed from sale.”
Christmas ham is a staple holiday tradition in Australia, where it is served cold, according to The New York Post.
I know this may not have been ham-tastic timing and the company should have probably shelved the product for a year when conflicts have been cured. But it obviously had nothing to do with Hamas and we really shouldn't normalize this level of sensitivity.
There is no doubt that Hamas is an evil terrorist organization but there was no connection to them with this pulled pork.
The ironic thing here is that both Muslim and Jewish people don’t eat ham.
But because of this, one of the only standing Kmart left in the world will have to come out with its hams up.
If you ask me, people got a bit too ham-otional with this one.
