Wal-Mart is selling an Occupy Wall Street poster
Though an outside vendor is selling the item on the company’s marketplace, a lot of people still found it ironic.

OCCUPY WALL STREET was a movement protesting the greed of big corporations – including Wal-Mart.

Now, in an ironic twist, Wal-Mart is selling a poster portraying the protests in New York City.

An outside vendor is selling the item on Wal-Mart’s marketplace, but many people still found the poster ironic.

“Quite possibly the only thing funnier than being able to purchase a Ché Guervara tee shirt at a big box chain store would be the ability to buy a panoramic poster featuring Occupy Wall Street’s encampment in Lower Manhattan from that chain,” wrote Andrew Kirell at Mediaite.

This is the best quality image of the poster we could get:
