Walmart Removes Cosmopolitan Magazine from Checkouts

Last Wednesday, Walmart announced that it would be removing Cosmopolitan magazines from the checkout lines at over 6,000 store locations protecting minors from the sexually explicit material that Cosmopolitan embodies and perpetuates.

“As with all products in our store, we continue to evaluate our assortment and make changes,” Walmart said in a statement released┬álast week. “Walmart will continue to offer Cosmopolitan to customers that wish to purchase the magazine, but it will no longer be located in the checkout aisles. While this was primarily a business decision, the concerns raised were heard.”
