Bed Bath & Beyond pulls decorative pumpkins after community outrage over blackface

Literally nothing is safe from the SJW crowd. If you don’t believe me, just keep reading.

Bed Bath & Beyond has pulled some Halloween decorations from their stores after neighbors complained the decorations, which were first noticed outside a law firm in Nyack, New York, were racially insensitive.

News 12 in Westchester, New York reports that the law firm took the pumpkins down after only being out for two days.

“We understand that someone complained about them and so once we got word of that we immediately took them down,” says Mary Marzolla, a partner at the law firm.

Marzolla says the pumpkins, personalized with the names of each partner at the firm on South Broadway, were never meant to offend anyone.

“We represent people of all colors and faiths, and we would never do anything to exclude anyone from any community,” she says.

Her associate, Alak Shah, says he didn’t think twice about the jack-o’-lanterns.

It’s just nothing I take offense to personally, but since it did offend someone we took proactive steps to take it down,” he says.

Local NAACP Director Wilbur Aldridge says it shows an “extreme lack of sensitivity.”

After bringing attention to the decorations, Bed Bath & Beyond pulled them from their stores and apologized “saying that any offense was unintentional and that it ‘immediately removed’ the pumpkins from sale,” reports the TV station.
