Sears lists swastika ring on website

Sears is offering a big apology and pulling this item from its website: a sideways swastika ring for men.

The item is described as gothic and claims it's "Not for Neo Nazi or any Nazi implication."

One woman on Facebook posted on Sears' page saying, "Please tell me this is a misunderstanding."

In a statement to WPVI-TV, the ABC News affiliate in Philadelphia, a Sears Holdings spokesperson said, "The offensive item, which was listed by independent third-parties on Sears Marketplace, violates our guidelines, and was removed as soon as we became aware of its existence on our site. We are contacting the Sellers to strongly voice our concern over their lack of judgment."
