The Kodiak Walmart, which is approximately 225 miles from the state’s capital Anchorage, had its Facebook page receive over 70,000 likes and the #ExilePitbull hashtag trended on Twitter. “From Miami to St. Louis we saw hundreds of thousands of fans like their local Walmart Facebook page, but Kodiak was the winner,” said Walmart spokeswoman Sarah Spencer on Tuseday to ABC News.
Despite the result, the multi-platinum artist is taking it all in stride. “I heard that Kodiak, Alaska, has the most likes due to someone that thinks he was playing a prank … but you’ve got to understand, I will go anywhere in the world for my fans,” Pitbull said in a viral video addressing the situation.
Pitbull is scheduled to go to Kodiak, Alaska by the end of July.
