Piers Morgan Accuses Walmart of Selling Guns to Kids After Viral Photo

039;Own The School Year Like A Hero' Walmart sorry for 'horrible' gun display

Though Walmart officials scratched the IN store off its list, Leeanna May, who told The Washington Post she snapped the now-viral photo, maintained that the "disgusting" display was at a location IN Evansville.

On Friday, Walmart spokesman Charles Crowson confirmed to CNNMoney that the company has determined that the incident was the result of mischief.

"We regret this situation and are looking into how it could have happened".

Walmart, for their part, did publicly apologize for the display, calling it terrible and saying they'd investigate how the sign got there in the first place.

On Thursday evening, a Walmart spokesperson told The Times that it was possible the image had been "digitally enhanced" or is some kind of prank.

Previously, NOAA said there would be two to four major hurricanes this season, and five to nine hurricanes overall. The numbers announced on Wednesday include the season activity to-date.

Crowson also said early indications the sign was at a store in Evansville, Indiana, were incorrect. The company's social media has since been corrected. Walmart corporate said it didn't mean any disrespect and the display was quickly taken down.

Leeanna May told the Post she took the photo and that she was in Evansville when she did it.

"We have already lost so many innocent lives to guns", she said, adding that she drew an immediate connection between firearms and school shootings. 'This was disgusting and we removed the sign as soon as we found out'.

After May said that the store was in Evansville, the company replied at 9:33 am to say: "I'm happy to tell you our store manager Christina has removed the sign from the display".

This isn't the first time Walmart's marketing strategy has left consumers outraged. A photo showed boxes of stacked up to resemble the World Trade Center in what appeared to be an attempt to commemorate the September 11 attacks.
