On Wednesday, August 9th, pictures began surfacing of a Wal-Mart gun display onto which someone had placed this sign: "own the school year like a hero." The pictures quickly began spreading across the internet. Wal-Mart corporate is now investigating to see whether the incident was caused by a careless employee or a tasteless prankster.
Absolutely, Anthony. We agree this was horrible and we've since removed the sign from the display. -Vik— Walmart (@Walmart) August 9, 2017
This was a terrible error. We are working to identify the store involved. -Mac— Walmart (@Walmart) August 9, 2017
Or perhaps the work of a prankster rearranging signs for a photo-op— Ray Radlein (@Radlein) August 9, 2017
