Many shoppers have recently boycotted against Walmart over a costume that they deemed racist.
Last week, online retailer Costumeish had caused quite a stir in the media, after a costume resembling Kim being tied up during her robbery incident, was put on sale and now a costume that looks like Tupac was put on the market . According to http://www.HotHipDetroit.com, many folks on Twitter are angry with the “#casualracism,” that this product seems to be entailing, which is now sold out and is no longer on Walmart’s website.
Many people took to Twitter, to express their frustration with Walmart’s insensitive idea of even selling such an item…
