Walmart: Sorry About That Porn

UPDATE: More Walmart Porn Found

Why did Walmart.com sell gay anime tentacle porn? We asked, and Walmart.com spokeswoman Amy Colella said:

“These titles erroneously appeared on Walmart.com due to an isolated system filtering issue. We’re taking this matter very seriously, and are working to remove these titles immediately from our website. We apologize to our customers for this occurrence.”

Guess they need to add gay, porn, anime, weiner, sex, kinky, yaoi, mature, explicit, and 18+ to that system filter. Tentacles, too. You always gotta watch out for the tentacles.

Oh, and Target? Target is like, Isaac Mizrahi says that putting interesting foreign books around the house is a great way to liven up a space on a budget — BEN POPKEN

  1. So much for visiting Consumerist at work. :(
    Just when you officially stop being porn…

    I was about to write a post protesting the removal of porn from Wal-mart’s web site but if it’s all as crappy as the picture above, well, never mind!

    Where’s the blacklist filter on Wal-Mart for all that smut?

  3. TVarmy says:

    Yeah. The image is in kinda poor taste.

    Walmart: You could have started a culture shift in the Heartland, with yourselves at the reigns. You blew it(Innuendo may or may not be intended)! Think of what you could have sold after changing so many hearts and minds.

  4. I view this site from work as well.The image doesnt bother me at all, however I am sure that somebody in my IT department might be inclined to get after me.

    But then again, thats what I get for browsing the web at work, so I am mostly responsible for my actions.

    That image above is from an online comic called “Ghastly’s Ghastly Comic.” I sincerely doubt that it was any part of the material being sold at any of these large chain stores.

    The picture above is a joke. Real tentacle porn wis pretty intense and full of rape. Just google +tentacle +fucking.

  7. AcilletaM says:

    Just don’t google it at work…

    I’m sorry…
    but…

    REAL tenticle porn?

  9. Jesse in Japan says:

    Who even uses the word “weiner” in that sense anyway? Who the hell uses it in any sense?

    Pronell, yes, it exists. The things some women will do with an octopus for money…

    OHO! No apology necessary Amy!

    Hilarious. To say the Ghastly is NSFW is the understatement of the day. At least he didn’t take one of Ghastly’s Jesus panels… That would have caused a serious ruckus.

    Jesse,

    Weird AL uses it. Have you never heard of Twinkie Weiner Sandwiches?

    I find the cartoon rather funny. If that is all it was I can see if being offensive to a child. Mind you I bet it was much worse and I’m surprised wal-mart didn’t check something like that.
