Does Kroger charge “The Black Lives Matter” To the Customer’s Grocery Bill?


A photograph of a Kroger Receipt went viral on the internet a few days ago. The picture claims that the Black Lives Matter movement is allegedly associated with the coin shortfall of the country. In order to bear with the shortage, each customer will be receiving an extra 59-cent charge over their bills.


INDIANAPOLIS — A photograph has been surrounding lately on the internet of a Kroger receipt proclaiming an additional charge of 59 cents over “the Black lives matter movement” is not authentic.

The internet post with the receipt photo claims that the supermarket chain has been adding a 59 cent “Black lives matter charge” to the grocery bills.

The team from VERIFY has checked with Kroger and discovered the picture to be fake. Somebody had the photo deliberately falsified and later posted it on the internet.

Kroger Submitted a screenshot of the original receipt from an Indiana store to the 13News channel on the 15th of July. As a matter of fact, “Change shortage” was written on the receipt.

The company responded by saying that it was due to the shortage of coins that has been faced by the entire nation. Earlier in the month, Kroger officially reported that customers can now load their coin change on their Kroger loyalty card. The invoice says “Change Shortage” whenever the issue appears to be happening while shopping.

So, it is officially verified that the picture uploaded on the internet is incorrect and misleading.
