Walmart Refused To Print This Engagement Picture
Walmart sells guns, but wouldn’t print up a picture with guns in them.
Stephanie Wehner and her husband-to-be Mitch Strobl posed for a series of engagement photos, including one that reportedly showed Strobl slinging a 12-gauge Ruger Red Label over-and-under shotgun over this shoulder. But when they went to Walmart to retrieve their 13 photos, they only got 12 back – and a note that read “MINUS ONE 5×7. NO WEAPONS,” reports the Daily Mail.
A Walmart employee reportedly explained to the couple that she felt the photo promoted “gang violence,” something that is against “store policy,” and that she was sorry, but she wouldn’t process it…
Walmart issued a statement in which it blamed the new employee for mishandling the situation.
“We had a new associate who was misinformed. Her actions are not consistent with our policy,” the spokesperson said.
