Walmart apologizes for tweet calling Missouri Sen. Hawley sore loser


BENTONVILLE, #Ark. (AP) — #Walmart apologized #Wednesday for a tweet that called #Republican #Missouri #Sen. #Josh #Hawley a sore loser for contesting #President-elect #Joe #Biden’s victory in the U.S. presidential election.

The now deleted tweet, “Go ahead. #Get your 2 hour debate. #soreloser,” was mistakenly sent by a member of #Walmart’s social media team who meant to publish it on their personal account, the company said.

The hashtag ##BoycottWalmart began to trend on #Twitter shortly after it appeared on the company’s official #Twitter account.

The tweet was a response to #Hawley’s announcement that he plans to raise objections next week when #Congress meets to affirm #Biden’s victory. The objections won’t alter the election results, but it could delay the certification of #Biden’s win.

“We have removed the post and have no intention of commenting on the subject of certifying the electoral college,” #Walmart said in a prepared statement. “We apologize to #Senator #Hawley for this error and any confusion about our position.”

#President #Donald #Trump has said there was widespread fraud in the election and has pushed #Republican #Senators to back him up. #But the #Electoral #College has already cemented #Biden’s 306-232 victory and numerous court challenges have been thrown out or rejected.

#Still, #Hawley responded to #Walmart with his own tweets #Wednesday, asking the company if it would “apologize for using slave labor,” and for the “pathetic wages you pay your workers as you drive mom and pop stores out of business.”

#Walmart and other major retailers like #Target and #Amazon pay well above the federally mandated minimum wage.
