Over the years, Elon Musk has grown increasingly vocal about his support for Conservative issues. As a result, he has earned the support of right-wing Republicans.
Since purchasing Twitter, Musk has made several controversial statements, costing the company, which he now calls X, several advertisers. One of those advertisers was Walmart, where many Republicans do their shopping. Now multiple MAGA figures are calling for a boycott of the store.
Libs of TikTok, a popular account among Trump fans, posted, "Walmart pulled their advertising from X. Maybe they’re just going to focus all their energy on sponsoring grooming events for children. Walmart is a major sponsor and promoter of pride."
Robby Starbuck, another MAGA figure, wrote, "Additionally, the Walton family that became billionaires off of Walmart have helped fund drag shows for kids. I bet a lot of red state Walmart shoppers aren’t aware of that. It’s a bold move to attack the free speech platform your top customer demographic uses right before Christmas. Time to spread the word!"
And reposting Starbuck's message, Trump sycophant Stephen Miller wrote, "Walmart is determined to absolutely screw over its customer base in middle America. Bud Light was the last company to show such unvarnished contempt for its consumers."
Unlike the Bud Light situation, Walmart shoppers don't have a lot of places to turn to. It is unlikely that will make much a difference.
