    Bed Bath & Beyond pulls controversial black jack-o-lanterns from shelves

    Bed Bath & Beyond pulls controversial black jack-o-lanterns from shelves

    Retailer Bed Bath & Beyond have removed their black jack-o-lanterns from store shelves after receiving complaints that they were a form of blackface.

    News 12 reports that the all-black pumpkins with two white eyes were on display at a law firm in Nyack, New York as decoration for Halloween. Community members complained and the law firm Feerick Nugent MacCartney removed them. The firm said they did not mean to offend anyone.

    We understand that someone complained about them and so once we got word of that we immediately took them down, Mary Marzolla, a partner at the law firm, told News 12.

    Wilbur Aldridge with the NAACP said that the black jack-o-lanterns are "an extreme lack of sensitivity."

    "By now I would believe everyone [would] know that anything in blackface is offensive," he said in a statement. "Equally as offensive is that a retail store would have such an item in [their] inventory for general purchase.

    News 12 reports that Bed Bath & Beyond has apologized and immediately removed the items from shelves.

    They should pull the orange ones off the shelves as well because its offensive to Asians

    Only keep the white ones on shelves

    One day when everything in western society goes sideways, not if but when, people are going to look back and long for the days when their biggest issue was what color a fake pumpkin on the shelf was. I cant wait to hear how this fuckery sounds in a history book some day. Its all recreational outrage, theyve literally made outrage a sport

    I am convinced most black people don't want anyone to know that they are black; until they want to use it to their advantage. This will never end.

    It's getting super stupid. This is turning into Soviet Union era suppression. Look all around you. Freedom of speech and expression is being limited. You can be arrested for callling someone a name under the guise that it is a "hate crime".

    It's literallty intentional. Little by little they chip away at your freedoms. Then they are trying to bring in "socialism", which doesn't differ much from communism. Globalization and then Open Borders. The people voting for this crap are the enemy to America. We had a revolution only a few hundred years ago bc of these exact reasons, and now these people are trying to bring it back again.
