Recently, a Indiana Walmart store featured guns for sale that were marketing as “Own the school year like a hero”. You read right...
According to The Shade Room,
“We are investigating this situation and deeply regret that this image has been circulated as it doesn’t represent our company values,” Walmart tweeted upon learning of the photo. They tweeted to another Twitter user that “This REALLY isn’t acceptable,” and that “The sign’s gone and we’re looking into how this could have happened.”
It is unclear whether an employee created the display or a customer manipulated it, however, Charles Crowson, a spokesman for Walmart, sent a statement to the Washington Post where he reinforced that there would be an investigation. “What’s seen in this photograph would never be acceptable in our stores,” he said. “We regret this situation and are looking into how it could have happened.”
