Target Apologizes After ‘Manatee Gray’ Color For Plus-Size Women Draws Controversy

Twitter user Susan Clemens was shopping on, and noticed the following:

Apparently, “Manatee Gray” is a real color that is used all over Target’s lineup of clothes, pillows, and towels. Of course, the fact that the people in charge of the standard sizes are apparently different from those in charge of plus sizes - and the fact that this was a simple error - still riled up the Internet. Eventually, Target responded:

Susan Clemens still stands by Target, realizing their error was benign and not intended to offend.


But some people, of course, are still rather…brash.
