December 8 [13:00 EDT] -- "The Fat Of The Land" LP from the clamor-creating band The Prodigy has a new distinction. The record reportedly has been pulled from Kmart and Wal-Mart stores after said retailers got wind of the controversy surrounding the single "Smack My Bitch Up."
As we reported last week, the National Organization for Women seriously objected to the negative message they feel the track sends regarding violence against women. According to "The Hollywood Reporter," Wal-Mart removed the album Friday after learning of the opposition from NOW, as did Kmart, who reportedly pulled the "Fat" from over 2,000 of their stores.
When MTV News contacted stores directly, Kmart retailers had yet to hear of the mandate, so if you hurry, you may still be able to find it. Wal-Mart was in the process of removing the album from their shelves.
"Fat Of The Land" has already sold two million copies in the U.S. since its release
