Groupon Apologizes For Listing Featuring Racial Slur
Groupon is apologizing for a racial slur that appeared on its website.
On Wednesday, the N-word was used to describe the color of the boots. Screenshots made its way to social media quickly. A Groupon VP issued an apology, saying “When made aware of the issue, we immediately removed the deal — as well as the third-party seller — from our marketplace. Language like this has no place on Groupon and we’re further strengthening our self-service controls to ensure it doesn’t happen again.”
Some outraged customers are calling for a boycott. Tiffany Haddish, who is a Groupon spokeperson, has yet to comment.
