Grocery Store Yanking Items With Political Packaging Prompts Boycott Calls

Social media users are upset and vowing to boycott Harris Teeter and Kroger after one agreed to and the other said they’d consider removing two items emblazoned with politically charged messages from their shelves.

On Tuesday morning, Christy Clark, a Democratic candidate for North Carolina’s House of Representatives, posted on Twitter that she was “disappointed” with two styles of koozies that were being sold in a store. She asked Harris Teeter and Kroger to discontinue selling them.

One of the koozies Clark raised issues over depicts a bald eagle holding a gun that reads “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death.” Another shows an individual holding a military-style assault rifle with “Arms Change, Rights Don’t”.
