Yay Feministing readers! The gross “Who needs credit cards…” panties have been pulled from Wal-Mart:
“We have directed our stores to remove this merchandise from our shelves,” Linda Brown Blakely, a spokeswoman for Wal-Mart, told FOXNews.com Wednesday.
The undergarments had caused a stir on some blogs prior to Wednesday’s announcement. Scarlett, a reader of Feministing.com, alerted the blog to the holiday-inspired undies, which she found on a rack in the juniors department of a Wal-Mart in Cary, N.C.
Go Scarlett! And as Ann just said via Skype to me: File this away for the “online activism isn’t ‘real life’ activism” rebuttal files. Indeed.
UPDATE: This is hilarious; Fox News has the panty story on their front page. Please go look at the headline this instant.
