When the new baby appeared on the cover with Elton John and David Furnish most media and blogs ran with the story. A Harps store in Arkansas placed a gray plastic family shield to protect young shoppers precious eyes from glancing at the couple smiling on the magazine cover. It is not a nude magazine? The outraged expressed by the loyal customers prompted store management to appease the customers by placing a family shield on the magazine. It is placed there by management discretion when customers complain. Kim B. Eskew, the President and COO of Harps issued an apology.
Sir Elton John and David Furnish are not OK with everyone in Arkansas…especially two gay men openly married and smiling about the new arrival of their adopted baby.
