Walmart Faced With Backlash Over Racist Email Blast

05/25/2021 12:00 AM EDT by WBLS Staff
This is crazy and outrageous. Walmart is catching some heat after a racist e-mail blast was sent to a huge number of customers. According to reports, Walmart shoppers received an email with the headline that read “Welcome To Walmart, N***er!” Many of the shoppers took a screenshot of the email saying that it was sent in a private email, while others believed it was a hoax. The recipients also put the store on blast via Twitter for allowing the email to be sent out in the first place. Walmart has yet to respond to the allegations but this isn’t the first time that the superstore has used the N-word. In 2017, they used the word to describe a Black hair care product as it was posted on their website. We will keep you posted with updates on this developing story.
