Walmart claims the member of their social media team who posted a rude comment to Senator Josh Hawley about his objection to the 2020 election, actually meant to make the nasty comment from their personal account, not the Walmart account.
They issued an apology as well.

Do you believe them?
Well, if you’re looking for a company to boycott – I mean, really, truly boycott – look no further than Walmart.
They just stepped over the line in a big, big way and went after Senator Josh Hawley after he vowed to object to the election results.
Why Walmart thought it was a good idea to get “political” and jump into the fray is beyond me. This never ends well for companies, especially ones who depend on a lot of “middle-class” Americans, and especially when half the country believes they were cheated out of their vote.
But they did the unthinkable – the thing that has sunk so many companies and institutions before them – and they not only got “political” they got downright nasty with a US Senator who is speaking out on our behalf.
Here’s what went down:
Josh said that he was objecting to the election on January 6th, because millions of voters are concerned about election integrity and believe they deserve to be heard.
Fair enough. We’d expect nothing less from him, right?
And here was Walmart’s snarky and nasty response: “Go ahead. Get your 2 hour debate. #soreloser”
Hawley responded to their tweet with this: “Thanks @Walmart for your insulting condescension. Now that you’ve insulted 75 million Americans, will you at least apologize for using slave labor?”

It didn’t take long for #BoycottWalmart to trend on Twitter.
I have to say, I was shocked at that comment. I’m sure it was a low-level marketing intern who wrote it, but it’s so damaging to the brand. I have not shopped at Walmart in a long time, mainly because of their ties to China, but after seeing that comment, I promise you, low-level marketing intern, or not, I will never step foot in one of their stores ever again.
Walmart just outright attacked a US Senator standing up for the American people

If you’re a Walmart shopper, I hope you consider leaving them and spending your hard-earned money at a place that doesn’t treat your concerns like yesterday’s garbage.
