People of Wal-Mart: Is it ok to make fun of these Wal-Mart shoppers?

Yes, there's nothing wrong with People of Wal-Mart.
No, People of Wal-Mart should be shut down. It violates shoppers' privacy and mocks everyday people.

People of Wal-Mart is a blog that has gone viral. It is a blog where people send in pictures of shoppers at Wal-Mart for viewers to make fun of. The pictures on People of Wal-Mart show men with mullets, overweight people in skimpy outfits, highly questionable fashion choices, and other bizarre sightings at Wal-Marts across the country. People of Wal-Mart has become popular very quickly, but there are some who do not find the website funny. Critics say that it makes fun of poor people, reinforces stereotypes, and misrepresents Wal-Mart shoppers. The site's creators say that they have standards regarding who they mock. They do not make fun of people with disabilities and they won't post a picture of someone solely because they are overweight. I agree, people shouldn't make fun of you if you're obese, but if you think you can rock that miniskirt and tube top, then you're fair game.

    It's nice that the right wing nuts have a place where they can get dressed up and do a little shopping...

    Figures, people are morons. I know people who are very well off and shop at Wal-Marts. The city I lived in bought this type of stereo type and even tried to block a Wal-MArt saying it would bring prostitution.

    Now in Mexico I have been known to shop at a Wol-Mart but that is another story.

    When people get tired of looking at the THESE folks, they can also turn to CNBC, MSNBC, CNN, NBC, CBS or ABC and find the same kind of dorkiness to make fun of.

    They're not askign permission to put pictures of someone else on the net, they could cause some serious damage to those people's lives.

    Given their exploitation of sweat-shop labor overseas, as well as their union-busting tactics here, it seems to me that anyone who shops at Gall-Mart should be ashamed of themselves as it is. Certainly nothing could be more embarassing to me than to be caught dead shopping at Gall-Mart!

    go to walmart for various reasons including cost (not everyone can shop at saks) and availability (who wants to drive fifty miles to find another store)

    Mocking people who shop or work at walmart is in bad taste, and more than a little elitist.

    The only reason I *don't* is there isn't one around.

    I go to Wal-Mart all the time (mostly because it's one of the only two places to shop in this tiny town where I attend University) and it's in no way offensive to me. Let's all have a laugh and stop taking everything so seriously!
