Barnes & Noble claims ignorance of Obama slur – Snopes verify it hapened, and Barbados protest begins!
One came from a recent contributor to this News-Blog;-
Re: Customer Service Mail (KMM22628056I15977L0KM)?Dear Customer, Thank you for writing to us about the book display which included President Obama in our Coral Gables store. The photograph being circulated on the Internet was taken by a customer in one of our stores, who maliciously placed an inappropriate title in the center of a display honoring President Obama. The store immediately removed the title from the display. Barnes & Noble finds this malicious act to be despicable. Sincerely, Barnes and Noble Customer Service email@example.com
Meanwhile, a Stateside friend of mine was shocked and did some snooping and found that Snopes – the Urban Legend debunkers – had verified the situation happened and B&N alleged it was a customer who defaced the display, but this is what my buddy said…
Prank or not, this is still reprehensible. I thought most window displays were locked.
