Sir Elton Covered for YOUR Protection

by Accidental Bear

I told myself I wasn’t going to use works like fuck, cunt and so on on my blog. But some time I cannot resist. The owners of this store putting these “family shield” covers over Elton and hubby while they hold their brand new off the shelf baby are ASSHOLES. And while I’m at it Fuck You Arkansas ! That really sums it up. No debate needed. I mean, Elton wasn’t even wearing anything offensively gay or hideous ( this time) .

Can Elton John‘s Baby Hurt You?

Update: The shields have been taken down at the store, according to the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, which spoke to Harps corporate executive assistant Marty Yarborough. She told GLAAD that the shields were placed over the covers because some of the customers complained. Brittany, a worker at the store, confirmed that the shields were taken down this morning.

A Harps grocery store in Arkansas censored an Us Weekly cover featuring new dads Elton John and David Furnish with their son, Zachary.

A Harps shopper named Jennifer posted a photo of the move to censor the cover at the Mountain Home, Ark., store on Twitter. It shows the issue of Us Weekly with a “family shield” to “protect young Harps shoppers” from seeing the image on the cover, typically reserved for sexual or violent images on magazines like Maxim or Playboy.

The manager at the store said there was no comment, and a call to Harps’ headquarters in Springfield, Ark., has not been returned.

Harps, founded in 1930, has 64 stores in Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri.
