After uproar, Walmart pulls Israeli soldier costume, Arab nose
Walmart pulled an Israeli soldier costume and a "Sheik Fagin" prosthetic nose after facing a backlash from social media.
The products reportedly were removed from the discount department store chain's website and from store shelves on Tuesday afternoon, hours after the American-Arab Anti-Discriminatory Committee called on Walmart and other retailers to remove the products, as well as others deemed anti-Arab.
The committee, known as the ADC, was joined in its call by the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, and the U.S. Palestinian Community Network, or USPCN.
