(PIX11) — Wal-Mart confused Jeremy Lin for Carmelo Anthony in their latest website mix-up.

The company posted a  listing for a 14-inch “NBA New York Knicks Anthony Carmelo” plush doll, but failed to notice its image was actually Jeremy Lin in his former No. 17 Knicks jersey.

Wal-Mart has since taken down the listing, but the mistake still appears in their search results.


This is not the first time Wal-Mart made headlines for their website.

In October, the company apologized for its “Fat Girl Costumes” section, which received harsh criticism on social media. Similarly, folks on Twitter have been posting about the company’s Carmelo-Lin mix-up.
