MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A new toy has hit the shelves at your local Walmart.

Teddy bears that “twerk” have been spotted on the shelves at the Walmart on Germantown Parkway and in Olive Branch.

The bears come with t-shirts that read “shake it,” and they move their hips to music.

Several viewers reached out to WMC Action News 5 and to Walmart saying the twerking teddy bears are vulgar and should not be displayed. Walmart has not released a statement concerning the product.
