UK Supermarket Apologizes For Selling “Inflatable Gay Best Friend” Doll, But You Can Still Buy It On Amazon

UK supermarket chain Tesco recently came under fire for selling a few offensive products on its website, including a Psycho Ward Halloween costume and an Inflatable Gay Best Friend doll.

When they manage to knock off a rich, handsome prince, then I’ll be impressed. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
