Wal-Mart Refuses To Sell Ronda Rousey’s Autobiography For The Most Ridiculous Reason

The undefeated UFC champion is apparently “too violent” for the retail giant.

Ronda Rousey's Book -- Walmart WILL Sell It, But WON'T Show It

Global retail giant Wal-Mart is reportedly refusing to sell UFC superstar Ronda Rousey’s upcoming autobiography simply because she’s “too violent” for their taste – or for the people who shop there.

My Fight/Your Fight – the memoir penned by the 28-year-old undefeated UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion – is set to hit shelves on May 12, but Wal-Mart won't carry it.

“I’m shocked, shocked to discover that censorship is going on in America,” said Judith Regan, Rousey's publisher.

Needless to say, Wal-Mart’s initiative won’t affect the book sales by any means as it has already pre-sold thousands of copies at Barnes & Noble.

Ironically, the popular chain store – as many have pointed out – is itself the largest retailer of arms and ammunitions in the United States and as depicted by its latest decision, has a skewed view on violence.

The Olympian medalist for Judo is scheduled to appear on Good Morning America, CBS This Morning and other shows for her book’s promotion.

Recently, the MMA star also appeared in The Expendables 3 and Furious 7.

Fans have also taken to Twitter to criticize the chain store and highlights its hypocrisy and double standards.
