Walmart is taking a step in the right direction by offering benefits for same-sex couples!

Sure, Walmart has had a controversial and turbulent history, but they’re finally taking a step in the right direction!!

Yup, even in the modern age and with the giant leap we took yesterday for equal rights, there are still plenty of folks who commit bigotry.

Actually, there are a number of stars, even A-listers, who've offended an ENTIRE people with derogatory words, behavior and pics.

Let's just hope the following celebs have learned their lesson after being publicly reprimanded…
