Chuck Netzhammer, a resident of Slidell, Louisiana, asked a local Walmart to bake a Confederate flag cake for him. But when they refused, he decided to test them out and see if they would make an ISIS cake instead.
Netzhammer presented his story in a YouTube video Friday, saying,
“Alright, Walmart, you’ve got some explaining to do. I went to go buy a cake from you all the other day with this image on it and y’all wouldn’t do it. I went back yesterday and managed to get the ISIS battle flag [cake instead].”
He shows the ISIS battle flag cake to the camera as well as the rejection letter Walmart gave him for the confederate flag cake request. Netzhammer also shows the receipt that went along with the ISIS battle flag cake that Wal-Mart agreed to bake.
“Walmart, can you please explain why you’re alienating Southern Americans with this trash that you allow to be sold at your store, while at the same point Confederate flag memorabilia is not allowed?” Netzhammer asks.
Walmart later apologized. A spokesman for Walmart told The Daily Caller, “Our local store made a mistake. The cake in the video should not have been made and we apologize.”
He later explained, “We made the decision to stop selling Confederate flag related items promoting the flag’s image. For that reason we did not make the cake. [Netzhammer] brought in the other image of ISIS and really, what happened, was our associate didn’t recognize what that image was and what it meant or it wouldn’t have been made.”
Walmart has refused to sell anymore Confederate flag merchandise, but it still sells Che Guevara t-shirts.
