Walmart Refusing To Sell Ronda Rousey's Book Because Of It's Violent Nature Is The Very Definition Of Hypocrisy
Yahoo Sports- Rousey, the former Olympic medalist, current movie star and undefeated UFC bantamweight champion, has seen a meteoric rise to pop culture sensation in only a few short years. Her last two title defenses have been finished in a combined 30 seconds. She is as close to unstoppable as the sport of MMA has ever seen.
Now, with Wal-Mart refusing to sell her book in-store (they are offering it online) due to the ‘violent’ nature of it, “Rowdy” has fired back at the company with a statement on Instagram.
"Success is the best revenge" one of many lessons I learned from fighting that helped me fight through life's battles off the mat and outside the octagon. @walmart is welcome to watch the success of this publication from the sidelines if they choose.
Look at Walmart restructuring it's image! Should they have started with the live ammunition section? Maybe cut down on the amount of homeless people? Taken the jizz covered horses off the shelf? Told Dez Bryant to take his domestic abuse to the Target parking lot? Probably, but you've got to start somewhere. Apparently that somewhere is taking the biography of a female MMA fighter off the shelves for it's perceived violence. At the very least you can no longer say that WalMart doesn't have standards.
They say nothing good ever happens after 3AM. Ironically enough, that's when Walmart does the most business. If we are being honest I think I would rather step in the ring with Ronda Rousey than a Walmart in the wee hours of the morning. At least I know what I am getting in the octagon. A couple broken limbs, a shattered ego, maybe a lifetime of shame and emasculation. In WalMart the possibilities are endless. It's the exact opposite of "the sky is the limit", you never know how low the dredges of society will stoop. Could you walk through, get what you need, and walk out unharmed? I suppose it's a possibility. Probably just as likely as you catching a crossbow to the chest, slipping in human shit, and getting pickpocketed by an elderly cross dresser.
There's a reason you've never seen a suggestion box in a Walmart. Know the amount of people that would be offended by the presence of this book? Zero. If you wanted to avoid being offended you would have taken your business to a place that isn't open at 4AM. Meanwhile, the only person that is pissed off that Ronda Rousey's book isn't on the shelf is the single most dangerous female on the planet. The only woman that could crush your will to live as fast as she could crush your bone structure. Wouldn't have been my first choice. There's nothing wrong with taking the low hanging fruit and pulling box sets of 'The Cosby Show'? Maybe tossing the Ray Rice jerseys in the dumpster instead of just making them 75% off. With the amount of downright abhorrent things that happen at Walmart, Rousey's book feels like an extremely strange place to start having morals.
You tell me what's more frightening....
