An Arkansas grocery store that treated "Us Weekly" like an adult magazine is reversing its decision.

The latest issue of Us Weekly features Elton John and his partner David Furnish holding their new baby, but shoppers at a supermarket chain called Harps didn't see this. Instead, they saw a plastic cover that reads: "Family shield to protect young Harps shoppers."

Twitter user Jenn Hudd took this picture last night at a Harps in Mountain Home, Arkansas.

Harps' corporate office got so many complaints, it instructed stores to remove the shields today.
