Kroger Apologizes For Schaub Tombstone

So much for having a sense of humor!

Kroger on South Voss and San Felipe is apologizing for a Halloween display that said, “RIP: Matt Schaub’s arm 2011-2013.”

Texan shoppers were offended by the tombstone and Kroger has since removed the display issuing this statement:

“Kroger would like to express tremendous regret over the derogatory Matt Schaub sign that was displayed at one of our store locations. It was created without the direction and approval from our marketing department. The sign has been removed. Kroger has been a proud sponsor of the Houston Texans for several years—in fact, this past weekend, we supported the Texans’ Pink Ribbon Day game, which promotes breast cancer awareness, a cause which Kroger is deeply committed to, and we’re excited to root on the team for the remainder of the season.”

Did Kroger go too far?
