I figured as much. I left it because I was intrigued by the story behind it.

Target apologises for 'Manatee Gray' plus-sized dress

US retailer Target has apologised for labelling a plus-sized dress after a rotund marine mammal.

Uproar followed when a shopper tweeted a screengrab of the "Manatee Gray" dress from Target's website.

A smaller size of the same dress was labelled "Heather Gray". Target has now changed the listing to simply "gray".

"It is never our intention to offend our guests and we apologize for this unintentional oversight," a Target spokeswoman told the BBC.

"Manatee Gray is a seasonal color used across Target product categories, from apparel to home items."

A large, aquatic relative of the elephant, manatees are sometimes called sea cows.
From BBC News - Target apologises for 'Manatee Gray' plus-sized dress.

^I heard about that yesterday but I don't think I quite understand why some people find it funny. It was both unintentional and they apologized right when it happened, I find that to be an innocent slip up. If it were intentional, I think it'd be a lot funnier. However, I think part of the issue is that the people offended really didn't need to express that it was Target's fault.

I think the fact that it was unintentional is a big part of why it's funny.

I suppose that would make sense then. But I don't know. To me it just seems like a silly thing to report on the news, if that makes sense.

I love the fact that it was unintentional as well. I'm pretty sure it had to pass some checks and they didn't even notice it.

I didn't hear about this but if it did indeed make the news, then I would hope it be a rather light-hearted piece. If it's creating any kind of controversy then that would just be sad.

I thought it was funny.
