Hallmark apologizes for ornament
UNDATED (WLOS) -- Greeting card giant Hallmark is apologizing for changing the lyrics to "Deck The Halls" on a new ornament that is sparking outrage online. The company is selling this mini version of a tacky holiday sweater. The sweater features the line "don we now our fun apparel," instead of the original lyric, "don we know our gay apparel."
After getting lots of backlash, Hallmark defended the move. A spokesperson said the word "gay" is "open to misinterpretation." The company is now apologizing, but says it will keep selling the ornament.
