Website mocks Walmart shoppers’ appearance

Posted on: September 3, 2009

people of walmartThe Internet is buzzing about a blog where people post pictures of overweight, unkempt Walmart shoppers.  The website, called “People of Walmart”, was a gag started by two 20-something brothers and their friend. The site is getting so much traffic, it crashed on Wednesday.

The photos featured on the blog are submitted by viewers all over the United States, showing out-of-shape people wearing tight clothes, bizarre hairstyles (like the mullet) and fashion crimes (like socks with sandals).

Once getting two or three photo submissions a day until last week, the site all of a sudden began receiving hundreds of e-mails.

But the blog isn’t popular with all audiences.  Some say the site mocks poor and rural customers of Walmart, reinforcing stereotypes.
