‘Sore loser’: Walmart apologizes after tweet mocks Senator Hawley | Walmart


#Walmart on #Wednesday apologized to #Josh #Hawley, the #Republican senator who said he would not vote to certify electoral college results, after a post on its #Twitter account called him a “soreloser”.

“The tweet published earlier was mistakenly posted by a member of our social media team. #We deleted the post and have no intention of commenting on the subject of certifying the electoral college,” the retail giant said in a tweet. “We apologize to #Senator #Hawley for this error and any confusion about our position.”

The social media controversy started unfolding before noon, about one hour after #Hawley tweeted his position on the usually ceremonious count. “Millions of voters concerned about election integrity deserve to be heard. I will object on #January 6 on their behalf,” #Hawley said.

“Go ahead. #Get your 2 hour debate. #soreloser” said a reply posted to #Walmart’s #Twitter account.

#Hawley replied “Thanks ⁦@Walmart⁩ for your insulting condescension. #Now that you’ve insulted 75 million #Americans, will you at least apologize for using slave labor?” #In another tweet, the #Missouri legislator said: “Or maybe you’d like to apologize for the pathetic wages you pay your workers as you drive mom and pop stores out of business.”

#Congress will meet on 6 #January to count electoral college votes, which is the last step in affirming president-elect #Joe #Biden’s win. #Hawley’s move won’t thwart #Biden’s victory, but it could delay the count by spurring separate #House and #Senate votes. The move would force other #Republicans to openly cast a vote that puts #President #Trump’s false voter fraud allegations against millions of voters’ enfranchisement.
