Kroger Supermarket Sorry for "RIP: Matt Schaub’s arm 2011-2013" Halloween Display

A Halloween display inside a Houston Kroger that included a "RIP: Matt Schaub’s arm 2011-2013" sign had panties in a bunch.

"This Kroger is located about five minutes from the neighborhood where Schaub and his family live. As if being terrorized at their own home isn’t enough, now the Schaubs can’t even go grocery shopping without seeing Matt’s name on a tombstone. Horrible," wrote Candelario Perez Jr.

Kroger later apologized for the incident and issued the following statement:

"Kroger would like to express tremendous regret over the derogatory Matt Schaub sign that was displayed at one of our store locations. It was created without the direction and approval from our marketing department. The sign has been removed. Kroger has been a proud sponsor of the Houston Texans for several years—in fact, this past weekend, we supported the Texans’ Pink Ribbon Day game, which promotes breast cancer awareness, a cause which Kroger is deeply committed to, and we’re excited to root on the team for the remainder of the season."

Oh lighten up.
