In an emotional YouTube post, Chuck Netzhammer showed a picture of the Confederate flag he asked Walmart bakery to make. In addition to the familiar stars and bars, he wanted the statement “Heritage Not Hate” was to be printed across the front.
Walmart refused to make the cake with the Confederate flag. Netzhammer claims that he was able to go to another Walmart in the same area and have an ISIS cake printed for him with no issues.
Statement by Chuck Netzhammer: “On 06/25/15 I attempted to get an Edible image cake printed with the confederate flag image on it at Walmart. It was denied. The next day I had them do the same for the ISIS battle flag image I brought to them. They cheerfully did it. and sold me my ISIS cake. WTF Walmart! ISIS is beheading Christians, selling little girls into slavery, and is currently a terrorist org at war with the United States……..but you can’t buy the General Lee toy car at Wallmart? It’s a damn shame.”
UPDATE: June 27, 2015:
The Daily Caller was contacted by Randy Hargrove, a spokesman for Wal-Mart, who said in an email, “Our local store made a mistake. The cake in the video should not have been made and we apologize.”
Hargrove later explained to TheDC, “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.”
