Tom Cruise Praises Walmart

Says it has improved ‘women’s lives around the world.’

Tom Cruise really knows about women. The actor made an assertion this week, according to MSNBC, that Walmart is a “role model” that has “improve[d] women’s lives around the world.” Critics are calling out Cruise, saying that he is out of touch with reality. Others on social media called him a “tool.” Walmart, according to The Huffington Post, has often fought in lawsuits with women, for instance, when 2,000 women last year claimed the company discriminated against them in terms of pay and promotions.
