Clinton Cards pull offensive council estate card

8 December 2014

Greeting cards seller Clinton Cards have apologised for, and withdrawn, for an offensive Christmas card listing on their website.

The £2 card, '10 reasons why Santa Claus must live on a council estate', lists the actual reasons inside, offering up unpleasantness such as "he only works once a year" and "drinks alcohol during working hours".

Let's see the thing, yeah?

Well done everyone. Really.

Following criticism on social media the firm said the card had been withdrawn. Clinton said "It is in no way reflective of our views and we apologise without reservation."

In a statement on its website, Clintons said: "We are investigating how this offensive card got through our quality control procedures, which we will review and tighten as a result of this incident. This was a mistake and we deeply regret the upset that this has clearly caused."
