Springsteen Apologizes For Walmart Deal
When Bruce Springsteen agreed last month to a deal with Walmart for exclusive rights to his new greatest hits collection, it drew some fire from some corners of the singer's fan base. How could The Boss, who has become vocal about liberal political causes in recent years, get into business with a company often accused of labor- and small-business-unfriendly practices?
Springsteen now says he regrets the decision. In a New York Times interview published Sunday, Springsteen confessed that he and his band "just dropped the ball" in regards to signing off on the deal. He specifically referenced the the company's labor history, and said he couldn't disagree with fans calling them on it.
The noted singer and his E Street Band performed at Sunday's Super Bowl halftime show.
