Last week Amazon, for the first time ever, surpassed Walmart as the highest valued retail store and people have been talking about it ever since.
For one local news station this is no surprise and they seem to “know why” Amazon surpassed Walmart.
While his colleague shared the news that Amazon had surpassed Walmart in value, John Potter, co-anchor for KTVN Channel 2, sat anxiously, waiting to share his “insider knowledge” of the online retailers success.
When his co-anchor finally finished her lines, Potter jumped at the opportunity to share the secret…
What? Yeah, you read that right, sex toys.
John quickly went on his little rant, even going as far to call out his friend as a witness.
“You know why, cause they sell sex toys and Walmart can’t or won’t sell sex toys. Amazon does.
“A friend of mine works in the warehouse, he says they sell a ton of them. I’m just telling you how it is.”
Well thank you Mr. Potter for telling us how it is.
Lucky for him, despite his rant going viral, he apparently still has a job. The anchor shared on his Facebook page that his friend who “works in a warehouse” told him he is staying at Channel 2.
Thank you Friends for your supportive messages. It turns out I’m staying here at Ch.2. That’s according to a friend of mine who works in a warehouse told me that.

Well John, we hope your “friend” is as accurate about your career as he was about Amazon’s success.
