    In a now-removed YouTube video that gained almost half-a-million views in three days, a man named Chuck Netzhammer condemns Walmart for making a custom Islamic State battle flag cake for him the day after his request for a Confederate flag cake was denied.

    In the video, Netzhammer of Louisiana holds up the white cake with black icing depicting an ISIL symbol and says, "That's an ISIS battle flag cake that anybody can go buy at Walmart … but you can't buy a Confederate flag toy, with, like, say, a Dukes of Hazzard car." (The Islamic State also is known as ISIL and ISIS.)

    "Walmart, can you please explain why you're alienating Southern Americans with this trash that you're allowing being sold at your store while at the same point, Confederate memorabilia is not allowed?" he asks.



    "Our talented bakery associates take pride in what they create for our customers. It's unfortunate one customer thought to take advantage of an associate who did not know the flag and its meaning," said John Forrest Ales, a spokesman for Walmart. "This cake should not have been made, and we apologize for the mistake."

    At 10:15 p.m. ET Monday, the video was removed from YouTube with the statement, "This video has been removed as a violation of YouTube's policy against spam, scams, and commercially deceptive content."

    Last week, Walmart, along with major retailers like Amazon, Ebay and Etsy, banned the sales of items promoting the Confederate battle flag for sale from its stores and its website. The move came the same day that South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley called for the removal of a Confederate flag from the state's Capitol grounds.

    Walmart is the world's largest retailer, with nearly 11,000 stores in 28 countries.

    I was no mistake. it is a perfectly played example of the hypocrisy that exists in this nation right now.

    Didn't know the meaning? Do they mean like the millions of idiotic supporters of the banning of the Confederate flag who have no idea what it actually means?

    So you think the $8/hr decorator at Walmart was up to date on their ISIS iconography?

    1. no one knows (or cares) what the isis flag looks like.
    2. walmart is not the government they have the right to refuse service.
    3. make your own fucking cake dummy.

    So, if someone had gone in to the exact same store on the exact same day and ordered a confederate flag cake and some "$8/hour" dumbshit had made it for them what would have happened then? Oops, just a mistake? Are employees responsible to know what they can and cannot put on a cake according to the company's policy or not?
