I noticed that soon after I ran my blog entry on Sears selling pornographic movies, they were no longer found on Sears.com. But I wanted to wait for confirmation that the retailer would no longer sell these smut videos.
I just notice that Sears sent an email to the American Family Association confirming that they have pulled the videos and won’t sell them anymore:
“We sincerely apologize to any customers who were offended. Our agreements with our vendors prohibit content that is pornographic or sexually explicit in nature. We are removing these items that do not meet our guidelines. We regularly review our processes to ensure compliance by our vendors, and we encourage our customers and community to help us flag any items that they believe might violate our guidelines.”
Kudos to AFA and all those who contacted Sears and convinced them that it’s not worth it for them to be associated with this material at all. It’s good that Sears.com is again family-friendly.
