Walmart Once Again Bungles, Offends and Alienates

I don’t hate Sam Walton, I don’t hate jobbers or discounts or international trade. I don’t even hate many lawyers. I hate when corporations jump through hoops to set up faux social media (social media includes listening) in order to reach out to everywoman and then they trample us.

Literally.

There is only one thing for Walmart to do at this point in time.

Apologize.

There’s a dead man and his father had to bury him. Yes, a father buried a son so that someone could get a flat screen TV, cheap. Rather than apologize Walmart has just today taken this off their website.

Just to be sure that search engines pick this up properly, let me give you the text.

Bring a buddy!!! If you guys think you can do this alone, think again people! These shoppers are die hard and they’ll run you over like there’s no tomorrow! The more you have, the better!

This comes from Kim at Hormone Colored Days. Naturally the mom who had originally posted it come through with a thoughtful comment.

I took a screenshot of this hideous comment for a number of reasons:

  • I’m sure that A Cowboy’s Wife will remove it at some point and deny saying it.
  • I’d like everyone who has a son try and imagine what Jdimytai Damour’s family would think reading that?
  • I’d like everyone with a conscience to imagine being on the jury that will surely hand out punitive damages to said family
  • I’d like Walmart to respond with an apology. A real one.

When a mother dismisses the death of someone’s child as not worthy of discussion or apology, I’m wondering if she, too, ought to be shunned.

Yes, I’m still on my high horse, because Walmart needs to tell the 11 moms to shut the fuck up and issue a proper apology.

A fund has been started by an attorney in the Northeast, I’m waiting for details.
