UPDATE: Target Apologizes After ‘Minnesota Badgers’ Onesies Spotted At Target
UPDATE (2/12/20): Target gave WCCO this statement Monday night: “Color us red. As a Minnesota-based company, we know we are home to the Gophers.” Target removed the items, and apologized to fans.
ORIGINAL STORY (2/11/20)
Well it finally happened a onesie made for a fan of the Minnesota Gophers and Wisconsin Badgers all blended into one. Just kidding, this was a big oops. According to City Pages a woman by the name of Kileigh who boasts is a proud U of M graduate had a keen eye at a Target recently and came across this prize.
Kileigh was shopping at the Target at the Quarry in Northeast Minneapolis which is fairly ironic since given it's location many people shopping there probably either attend the U of M or maybe had attended school there. It seems so crazy to me that somehow this slipped through the cracks and from a Minnesota based company no less. Well Target caught wind and took to Twitter to try and track down what store it was and who discovered this. All I can say is I feel sorry for the person who did the final sign off on this design, pretty sure they are not in that position anymore.
