UFC Champion Ronda Rousey celebrating victory after a recent match
Come on, Walmart!
We were just slightly proud of you for asking the governor of Arkansas to veto the state's so-called religious liberty laws, but then you go and do this? According to Richard Johnson, writer for Page Six of the New York Post:
Walmart — the largest seller of guns and ammo in the country — is refusing to sell a book by cage-fighting cutie Ronda Rousey on the grounds that she’s too violent.
“My Fight/Your Fight” (due May 12 from Regan Arts) has pre-sold thousands of copies at Barnes & Noble, and the ravishing Rousey is already booked on “Good Morning America,” “CBS This Morning” and other shows. But the mouth-breathers at Walmart will be denied.
In addition to selling more guns and ammo than any retailer in the country, the following books are all listed on Walmart's Top 200 bestseller list
American Sniper—In which Chris Kyle shoots and kills at least 160 men, women, and children.
Walking Dead Graphic Novels—In which heads are routinely blown off and faces regularly eaten off by zombies
Every book by Bill O'Reilly about killing someone—Patton, Jesus, Kennedy, etc.
10 Day Green Smoothie Cleanse—which is basically about violent butt explosions in the name of weight loss.
The point is this: Guns, which actually kill people, aren't too violent for Walmart, books about men who actually kill people with those guns aren't too violent for Walmart, but a book from an Olympic silver medalist who fights for sport is too violent?
Something's off. What do you think?
