Introducing Walmart’s New “Items Endorsed By Controversial TV Stars” Section

Convenience in controversy shopping.

Convenience in controversy shopping.

When it comes to convenience, whoever works at this Walmart is doing a great job grouping items if the category is “Controversial Celebrity Endorsed Things.” Consumerist reader Fernando snapped this pic showing a display stocked with Duck Dynasty- and Paula Deen-branded merchandise. Because see, hot topics in the media and all that.

For those not in the loop, the A&E series about a family of duckhunters has been in the crosshairs lately, after a cast member made some remarks during an interview that many are calling homophobic and racist.

And if you’ll cast your mind back to the Deengate Saga Of Fall 2013, you’ll remember that Paula Deen also found herself in hot water with advertisers and retailers carrying her products when she admitted to using racially-charged language.

So here you have it all, in one convenient place. Your one-stop destination for products endorsed by reality TV stars and cooking celebs who’ve become infamous somewhat recently.

    The sad thing is that the Paula Deen Cookware is not half bad. The weights of the pans are nice. Not as heavy say as, Caphalon, but in the Anolon range… Decent heft, so you won’t easily burn things.

    If only they were more attractive…

    They are also sneaky and try to put things in the clothing sections as well. It was heartbreaking to see something I liked, but once I saw that logo, I put it back!!
