NFL Star: Wal-Mart Left Kids Out in the Cold

5/14/2008 4:38 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Andre JohnsonNFL superstar Andre Johnson claims his charity got stiffed by Wal-Mart -- it all involves water and ice. Yes, ice.

Johnson ordered 750 bicycles to be given to underprivileged kids at an event sponsored by the Andre Johnson Foundation -- in return for the purchase, Wal-Mart agreed to donate water and ice for the May 3 event.

But there was a problem with the order, so Johnson ended up buying fewer bikes than planned. Wal-Mart countered by not giving the water and ice as promised. That's cold.

Wal-Mart is trying to rectify the situation. They tell TMZ, "We are reaching out to the Andre Johnson Foundation as we speak to rectify the situation. It's disappointing that this happened."

I have been a retail store manager for 25 years and have had to put up with WAL-China everywhere I go. They are ruthless, and really don't give a crap. I liken them to a professor with tenure, or a supreme court judge. They have the idea they are invincible and no one can stop them. There is a very simple solution to them, QUIT SHOPPING THERE PERIOD!

How did that even make sense in Wal-Mart's head? They already have people hating them for bungling up the whole Debbie Shank deal, and now they go and pull this stunt. Boycott, anyone?

I LOVE MY 3 CHILDREN THAT I DID NOT MURDER!!    

Actually Wal-marts biggest charity that they give to is The Childrens Miracle Network, if you look it up they have given billions since opening, they have saved alot of children and also have found thousands through their thoughtfulness on the missing children, in all their local areas they have given millions, all the jobs they have opened up in the U.S. You wish them to go away, but how many jobs would be lost and how the economy would be effected and how many children would suffer??? Before you hate, you should see how much good, lets not forget they price match, so no matter what you get the cheapest price around!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So go elsewhere and pay higher but don't complain when you cant afford anything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
