Bed Bath & Beyond Pulls Black Jack-O’-Lanterns From Stores [VIDEO]
A law firm in Nyack, NY has pulled some of it's Halloween decor from the front of it's building after some complained about the black Jack-O'-Lanterns on display.
Some in the community, including local NAACP Director Wilbur Aldridge, thought that the pumpkins resembled the controversial "Blackface" and requested that the law firm remove them. Well, the firm did remove the black Jack-O'Lanterns and so too did the business that sells them.
News12 reports that Bed Bath & Beyond has now removed the black pumpkins from its shelves and stores.
The store says that there was no intent when deciding to sell the black Jack-O'-Lanterns. However, upon hearing about possible complaints, the store elected to not sale the Jack-O'-Lanterns any longer.
