Walmart Bans Couple Wearing Swastika Masks
A COUPLE WEARING FACE COVERINGS WITH SWASTIKAS IN A MINNESOTA WALMART HAVE BEEN BANNED FROM THE RETAIL CHAIN FOR AT LEAST A YEAR
(CNN) – A couple has been banned from Walmart, after a video surfaced of them in a Minnesota store wearing face coverings with swastikas.
The incident happened on Saturday, the same day Minnesota started requiring everyone to wear masks in indoor businesses.
Another Walmart customer informed the store’s manager and recorded the video as she was checking out.
In the video, the unidentified woman could be heard saying she’s not a Nazi, but she says was wearing the face covering to show people what could to happen in America if they vote for Joe Biden.
The unidentified man added, “we’re living under a socialist state.”
The couple left the store without incident and no charges were filed.
A Walmart spokeswoman says the couple has been banned for at least one year.
The Star Tribune reported that police served the 59-year-old man and 64-year-old woman with trespass notices.
