I don’t typically visit Perez Hilton, however someone linked me to his site, where he had an article about Wal-mart only selling Whitney Houston’s cd online but selling Miley Cyrus (same day release) in stores.I don’t really care so much because I’m so avid Whit fan, but I think Wal-Mart is a hypocritical company. I try not to support them at all cost.
Does that sound harsh? Did you hear what Wal-Mart did to Debbie Shank. I remember reading about her a year or so ago. Debbie was a Wally World employee and got injured in an accident. Naturally as an employee for a major corporation she was enrolled in their health plan. Wally World shelled out about 470, 000 in medical expenses for Debbie, who was now brain-damaged. After a suit settled for Debbie for around 1 mil, after legal fees and such that left 417,000 to be put in a trust for Debbie. Wal-Mart sued her to recoup their monies.
Seriously? A billionaire company? Read more details if you’d like. But I swear I didn’t make it up!
So yeah, the rest of you can continue to shop there, but as I get older I put more thought into the brands I spend the cash at.
So this raises the question for me. Why would you opt for this? Are you trying to protect your “family-friendly” image? Yes? Did you do the same to Britney’s cd? Does it matter that M. Cyrus is a Disney slut?
I can’t do it! Thoughts??Is this a conspiracy? Is Walmart showing their strength as a retailer? Is this true? Is it just a rumor? I mean, its not like Perez Hilton is THE most reliable source. More details to come!
I was actually on twitter with this and someone responded to my post with a link to @WalmartKelly who is a media rep for Wal-Mart & this is what her page said!

So, if you so choose to go to Wally World (which I still don’t condone) then by all means do that on the release date. If its not there, I hope someone comes back & tells me! Pleeeaaasssseee 🙂
