Wal-Mart Denies Banning Kanye West Album, Says They're "Excited" To Carry It

Posted on Thu Oct 21, 2010 01:26 PM PDT


Looks like Kanye West may have been the one who stirred up the controversy surrounding his new cover art for his album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. The rapper had tweeted earlier this week that Wal-Mart banned the provocative cover from their stores. However, the retail giant is denying they've even seen the cover.

A rep for Wal-Mart released the following statement:

    “We’re excited about Kanye West’s new album and we look forward to carrying it in our stores on November 22nd. As always, it’s our standard practice to carry the edited parental advisory version. We did not reject the cover artwork and it was never presented to us to view.”

Kanye's tweet certainly gained worldwide attention for his upcoming album, which shows a monster-version of Kanye having sex with a naked woman ... with wings and a tail.

The rapper had tweeted, "Yooooo they banned my album cover! They don’t want me chilling on the couch with my phoenix! So Nirvana can have a naked human being on they cover but I can't have a PAINTING of a monster with no arms and a polka dot tail and wings."

Guess Kanye got what Kanye always wants ... more publicity. But it's going to be interesting as to how Wal-Mart will cover the risque image when it's sitting on their shelves.

Do you think Kanye crossed the line?
