Target under fire for 'Obsessive Christmas Disorder' sweater

Retail giant Target is being accused of poking fun at Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) with their latest holiday sweater.

Target recently released their line of holiday sweaters with one that defines OCD as 'Obsessive Christmas Disorder.' That didn't go over so well with some customers who took to social media to complain, saying the store is being insensitive to those that suffer from OCD.

One unhappy customer posted to Twitter, "Goodbye Target, won't have me as a customer again! What next joke tshirt about cancer! You are disgusting."

Others say the sweater is no big deal.

"Given how everyone is offended by something this year, perhaps OCD should be known as Offensive Compulsive Disorder," tweeted user Thomas Alexander.

Although a spokesperson for Target said, "We never want to disappoint any of our guests and apologize for any discomfort," the store has no plans to stop selling the sweater.

As for me, I don't think the sweater is disrespectful and I don't mind wearing one. Sometimes, it's just easier to breathe and "not get offended."
