According to TMZ, the demand is going through the roof for gymnastics-strength shower rods. Thanks to “Love & Hip Hop” star MiMi Faust‘s sex tape antics, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Target, and Walmart are all reportedly struggling to keep up their supplies as a result!
TMZ called employees at each of the major retailers (from Georgia to Cali) and all the stores have said the same thing. It seems ever since the trailer for Mimi’s sex tape came out, people have been racing to purchase their own super-strong shower rods to recreate the porno scene.
Supplies are supposedly running out! A customer at one Home Depot in Georgia told TMZ, they were totally sold out of Mimi-strength shower rods.
And how bout this, there is even an actual Twitter search for “Mimi shower rod” which shows an endless list of people trying to get their hands on one. But even worse, there’s also a Twitter account dedicated to it (@MimiShowerRod).
And just when you thought it couldn’t get worse than that… Vine videos both the simulation and parody variety have started to rear their ugly heads now too.
