Elton John magazine cover decision changed by supermarket

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: I got a lecture from a reader the other day for writing in a post excerpting an ‘US Weekly’ interview with Elton John and David Furnish that Elton at times has been a little bitchy.

The reader chastised me for not acknowledging the historical significance of two gay men and their baby making the cover of one of the major weekly magazines.

It’s a good point and one that really hit home after I read on Towleroad.com today that Harps grocery store in Mountain Home, Arkansas, covered the magazine with a shield “to protect young Harps shoppers.”

Thankfully, this outrageous act was made public by a vigilant shopper and tweeter.

Now comes word that the store has reversed its decision.

Reports CNN: The Arkansas-based grocery chain lets managers at its 65 stores decide when customers complain if the shield is needed, but it is usually for photos that are “sexually provocative or too revealing,” Harps Food Stores President Kim Eskew said. Complaints poured into the chain’s headquarters this week after photos of the shielded magazine spread across internet blogs and news websites.
