Walmart Criticized Over “Back-to-School” Sign On Gun Display
Walmart is being condemned over a photo taken of a gun display with a back-to-school sign on top.
The sign which read “Own the School Year Like a Hero” was placed above a glass case displaying guns. A Twitter user named Anthony, tweeted the photo with the caption;
“Explain this @Walmart” and it quickly went viral with a lot of people calling out the retailing corporation.
Piers Morgan who is very vocal about gun control also weighed in on the situation.
”Walmart and folks are outraged.”
Walmart quickly went into damage control, apologizing for the error and promised to look into it.
“What’s seen in this photograph would never be acceptable in our stores,” a Walmart spokesperson said in a statement. “We regret this situation and are looking into how it could have happened.”
Walmart hasn’t been established whether the sign was placed there by an employee or by a shopper but they promised to look into it.
