Target.com Jews link is faked

Perhaps you have seen a link on target.com floating around the internet/twitter/facebook that has some derogatory comments about Jews in the url.

This is not really on Target’s website. They have programmed their website to where anything will work in that spot and somebody thought it would be funny to put something awful there and spread it around the net. Please don’t blame Target for this. I called their customer relations department and reported the problem to them, so it will likely get fixed – but I’m hoping that people realize this has nothing to do with Target. I also submitted this information to snopes.

UPDATE: Target has taken care of the original link that was circulating the internet – however the url still supports dynamic rewrites so people can type whatever they want in that area of the url.
