Walmart has been forced to apologize after it apparently agreed to bake an ISIS-themed cake for a Louisiana customer – just a day after refusing to create a Confederate battle flag cake for him. Chuck Netzhammer submitted a request for a cake featuring a photo of the Confederate flag, with the slogan ‘Heritage Not Hate’ printed across it, to his local Walmart store in Slidell on Thursday. The store reportedly denied his request, which was made just a week after the Charleston, South Carolina, church massacre. Bakery staff wrote ‘cannot do cake’ on Netzhammer’s submission.
The following day, Netzhammer handed in a second cake request – this time, for a baked creation featuring an iced version of the Islamic State’s black and white flag – to test the store’s convictions. Incredibly, Walmart reportedly baked and iced the terror group-themed cake. On Friday, Netzhammer took to YouTube to express his disbelief at the store’s actions. ‘Alright, Wal-Mart, 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,’ he says in a video he later posted to the site. ‘I went back yesterday and managed to get the ISIS battle flag [cake instead].’
