Walmart comes under fire over "Back-to-School" sign on gun display

Walmart is under fire after a photo was taken of a gun display with a back-to-school sign on top.
The sign which read "Own the School Year Like a Hero" was placed above a glass case of guns. A Twitter user named Anthony tweeted the photo with the caption "Explain this @Walmart" and it quickly went viral with a lot of people calling out the retailing corporation.
Piers Morgan who is very vocal about gun control also weighed in on the situation.
''Walmart and folks are outraged."

Walmart quickly went into damage control, apologizing for the error and promised to look into it. 
"What’s seen in this photograph would never be acceptable in our stores," a Walmart spokesperson said in a statement. "We regret this situation and are looking into how it could have happened."
Walmart said it remains unclear whether the sign was placed there by an employee or by a shopper but they promised to find the exaction location of the store where the mistake was made and rectify it.

Jailed Athlete, Oscar Pistorius to be freed from jail for a second time on 'compassionate leave'

Jailed South African athlete, Oscar Pistorius is to be freed from jail on 'compassionate leave' next week to attend a funeral for his grandmother, who died earlier this week at the age of 93.
This will be the second time the convicted murderer will be given such preferential treatment by the Prison authorities.
Last October, the 30-year-old was driven by prison guards to spend a few hours at a boutique hotel where a memorial service was being held for his father's mother, Gerti Pistorius.
The double-amputee sprinter is serving six years for murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in February 2013. But he'll be eligible for parole in two years' time although prosecutors are still attempting to overturn his six-year sentence which they describe as 'shockingly low'.

Anthony Joshua's team disappointed Amir Khan got his wife to apologise for him

Anthony Joshua's team are reportedly disappointed that Amir Khan seemingly got his wife to apologize instead of Khan to do it himself after publicly accusing Joshua of having an affair with his wife.
Amir Khan and Anthony Joshua resolved their issue online after Khan's wife Faryal Makhdoom revealed that a fake chat was sent to her husband, making him believe she was having an affair with Joshua. Faryal apologized for the false accusation and Khan retweeted his wife's apology, adding that he was glad all was cleared up. Joshua accepted the apology but he is reportedly not happy that Khan did not apologize by himself.
Khan only tweeted: "Glad all is cleared up and all lies. I got angry like any man would. No truth to it. Good to know. All the best."
No where in his tweet did he apologize or acknowledge that he did wrong. Instead, he tried to explain away his action. Joshua has forgiven him but an insider told Sun Online that members of his team are furious.
The insider said: "AJ’s name has been dragged through the mud through no fault of his own which is totally unfair. We think an apology is the least he should expect. Anthony’s team are furious at what they consider to be a publicity stunt. They don’t want to be dragged into the Khans’ business.
"Anthony’s legal team got in touch as soon as it happened and Amir immediately promised to apologise. But it seems he has got his wife to do it – which is disappointing."
