According To The DailyMail:

A  supermarket in Arkansas sparked outrage today after it covered with a ‘family shield’ a magazine showing a picture of Elton John, his husband and their newborn baby.
The Arkansas store deemed the image of the gay couple and their child, on the front of Us Weekly, to be offensive.
Staff say complaints from shoppers prompted them to cover the magazine with the ‘shield’ – the same method used to cover pornographic magazines.

The Harps grocery store in Mountain Home, Arkansas
even wrapped last week’s edition of the magazine in a protective plastic shield to stop youngsters flicking through it.

Only the very top of the magazine was visible, with the cover reading: ‘Family shield. To protect young Harps shoppers.’
The move has sparked outrage among representatives from GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation).
Local resident Jennifer Huddleston took a photo of the shield and posted it on Plixi.
‘This was taken at my local grocery store,’ she wrote. ‘I was shocked and horrified.
‘They are saying they need to keep children from seeing it, because it is a gay family.’
Ms Huddleston then tweeted Anderson Cooper, Kathy Griffin, Ellen DeGeneres, The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), the ACLU and a number of other gay rights activists.
The picture immediately sparked controversy across the blogosphere.

But a company spokesperson defended the shield, saying Harps bosses reacted in response to ‘several’ customer complaints at that particular store.
He insisted the move was ‘in no way our opinion on this issue’, adding, ‘we do not have an opinion on this issue.’
