Target to keep selling 'OCD' sweater

Posted:

(CNN) -- Target is selling a sweater that some say makes light of obsessive compulsive disorder, which isn't so funny to some people who actually have the condition.

The red sweater is emblazoned with the acronym OCD, followed by the words "Obsessive Christmas Disorder."

Some customers are demanding Target stop selling the sweater.

The issue lit up on social media, with some saying the sweater mocks and trivializes a serious mental illness.

Several other tweets urged people to lighten up.

Target apparently feeling no compulsion to stop selling the holiday gear.

In a statement, target responded, "we never want to disappoint our guests, and we apologize for any discomfort. We currently do not have plans to remove this sweater."
