Walmart Condemned on Social Media for Back-to-School Sign

A Walmart in Indiana drew widespread controversy this week after a photo depicting one of its back-to-school displays spread like wildfire on social media.

Evansville resident Leeanna May took a picture of the display, which featured a sign that read, “Own The School Year Like A Hero.” But it wasn’t the sign that drew attention. It’s what was beneath it: a glass case filled with guns.

May revealed she had encountered the “disgusting” display while shopping early Wednesday morning, The Washington Post reported.

Bothered by what she saw, she then reported the display to store employees and posted a picture of it to social media, where it quickly went viral. This inspired dozens of angry comments against Walmart.

Upon being made aware of the display, Walmart spokesperson Charles Crowson condemned it, calling it “truly awful” and “horrible,” and promising to remove it once he had identified the specific location of this Walmart, which at the time wasn’t known.

By 9:33 am, the store had been found and the display removed.

Despite the retail corporation’s prompt response to this error, many were still frustrated, particularly because of what they believed to be a connection between gun ownership and school shootings.

“It’s not ok because of Sandy Hook, Columbine, Virginia Tech, UCC and all the other school shootings,” wrote Twitter user Michelle Parker.

May herself echoed this sentiment, saying, “We have already lost so many innocent lives to guns. People don’t seem to honestly care.”

What remains unknown is how the back-to-school sign wound up above a gun case. Some suspect an employee put it there, while others believe it was an obnoxious shopper.

Crowson confirmed Thursday that the company was “exploring all possibilities.”
