On Wednesday, a photo of a sign reading "Own the school year like a hero," perched above a glass-encased firearm display, spread like wildfire on social media. People were furious about the juxtaposition of the back-to-school sign and firearms.
Walmart immediately condemned the display, issued an apology and called it "truly awful." It also said it would investigate to locate the store in question and find out what happened.
