Video uploaded by YouTube user Chuck Netzhammer showed Walmart employees refusing to make him a cake with the Confederate flag depicted, but subsequently agreeing to make him a much more controversial design showing the ISIS flag.
In the video (below), Netzhammer — from Slidell, Louisiana, explained that he went to Walmart and requested a Confederate flag cake, which the store rejected.
“I went back and asked to get an ISIS battle flag printed,” he said, before the video cut to a shot of the ISIS cake being opened.
“That’s an ISIS flag cake that anyone can go buy at Walmart,” he explained. “But you can’t buy a Confederate flag toy like, say, Dukes of Hazzard’s car.”
Netzhammer then showed the rejection letter written by store employees, explaining that he wanted a “Heritage Not Hate” image of the Confederate flag written on it before being refused.
“Walmart, can you please explain why you’re alienating southern Americans with this trash that you allow to be sold at your store,” he asked while holding the ISIS cake, “while at the same point, Confederate flag memorabilia is not allowed?”
Walmart has not yet responded to Netzhammer’s request for an explanation, according to reports.
