NEW YORK (AP) — The Home Depot said Wednesday that a lien worksheet that has gone viral is an unauthorized document from the company’s Canada division.
An anonymous Twitter account with the handle “Libs of TikTok,” which has nearly 600,000 followers and focuses on ridiculing liberals, posted a photo of the spreadsheet titled “Unpacking Privilege,” saying the biggest retailer the country’s home renovation industry had “woken up”.
The worksheet outlined different types of privilege, from social privilege and white privilege to heterosexual privilege.
“If growing up college was an expectation of you, not a dream, you have class privilege,” he said. She defines racial prejudice as a set of discriminatory or derogatory attitudes based on assumptions stemming from perceptions about race/skin color.
While some on Twitter said they would no longer shop at the Atlanta-based retailer, others supported the spreadsheet’s message.
The Home Depot released a statement saying that while it supports diversity in the company, the worksheet was not created or endorsed by its Diversity, Equity and Inclusion department.
“This was a resource in our Canadian division and was not part of any required programming,” the company said.
