Calls to boycott the company ran rampant across social media circles, with some cooler owners taking a creative stand to show their dissatisfaction.

Take Bryan Atkinson, for instance. The avid outdoorsman from South Carolina filled his YETI cooler up with a cocktail of explosives, placed it in a 200-acre field, then blew it up with a single shot from his AR-15 rifle.
