Wal-Mart has been running an ad campaign this back-to-school season called "Own the school year like a hero".
Walmart offered the apology, however, only after some confusion about the store's location and the authenticity of the image was clarified.
Initial reports were the display was at a Walmart store on Evansville's west side. But the Post later spoke with the woman behind the initial photograph, who confirmed to the publication that the picture was taken at the IN store.
This morning, Walmart issued a statement and apologized for the display saying it was a "truly very bad".
"We have already lost so many innocent lives to guns", she said, adding that she made the immediate connection between guns and school shootings when she saw the display.
The woman who first posted the photo to Twitter, Leeanna May, told The Washington Post that she took the photo in Evansville. "... People don't seem to honestly care". HOW tone deaf can a corp be?,' one Twitter user asked incredulously.
According to The New York Times, images of the display began circulating on social media before Walmart addressed the situation. The company spokesperson also told the paper that though it's unclear if the sign was placed there by an employee or a shopper, the photo appears to be legitimate based on the way the store is configured.
