‘We Want Our Donations Back’: Walmart Cuts Ties With GOP Sen. Hyde-Smith Over ‘Public Hanging’ Comment

Cindy Hyde-Smith, the Republican Senator that came under fire after making comments about “public hangings,” has just lost her ties with Walmart, who decided to cut her off after her controversial statements.

Walmart, who had initially donated to Hyde-Smith’s campaign, urged her to refund the donation.

The giant retail company took to Twitter after Hollywood star Debra Messing pointed out that they had donated to Hyde-Smith after her controversial comments. But Walmart made sure that they weren’t endorsing her any longer.

“Hi Debra. Completely understand your concern. Sen. Hyde-Smith’s recent comments clearly do not reflect the values of our company and associates. As a result, we are withdrawing our support and requesting a refund of all campaign donations.”
