"Digital Maven, Art Director, Photographer, Writer, Entrepreneur, [and] Award-Winning Web Designer," according to her Twitter bio, Susan Clemens noticed that Target.com was selling two versions of its Mossimo Women's Kimono Maxi Dress: one in dark heather, and another in "manatee" as a plus-size offering. Jezebel helped Clemens call out Target, which responded, "We apologize for this unintentional oversight & never intend to offend our guests. We've heard you, and we're working to fix it ASAP." So far, that's meant quietly removing the manatee dresses from its website — lest its mammal customers take their business elsewhere.
