A couple who wore Nazi flag face coverings to a Walmart in Marshall, Minnesota have been told not to return.

Police say the couple has been issued trespass notices. Officials said they are banned from visiting any Walmart facility for at least a year.

Video posted on social media showed the couple going through a checkout lane on Saturday with the masks that featured the Nazi swastika flag. Onlookers appeared shocked by the masks and demanded the couple to remove them.

The woman seen wearing the mask argued she wasn’t a Nazi and indicated she was wearing the flag as a protest against socialism in America.

Saturday marked the first day of Minnesota’s mask mandate, requiring face coverings be worn in public places. However, Walmart’s mask policy took effect on Monday.

In a statement, a Walmart spokesperson said the incident was upsetting: “What happened today at our store in Marshall, MN is unacceptable. We strive to provide a safe and comfortable shopping environment for all our customers and will not tolerate any form of discrimination or harassment in any aspect of our business. We are asking everyone to wear face coverings when they enter our stores for their safety and the safety of others and it’s unfortunate that some individuals have taken this pandemic as an opportunity to create a distressing situation for customers and associates in our store.”

  1. This couple appears to have wanted attention and decided to wear a mask with an offensive swastika emblazoned on those masks. Kudo’s to WalMarts’s rapid response in requiring them to leave the premises due to their inappropriate and offensive referral to the Nazi Party and the massive destruction and horrific mass killing of innocent innocent men women and children in forced labor camps.

  2. I’m pretty uncomfortable with the BLM sign in my neighbor’s yard. BLM is a current terrorist organization. Bet they won’t get banned if I complain like the snowflake in Walmart complained.

  3. I wonder, would someone wearing a Soviet hammer and sickle mask or a Red Chinese themed mask also be banned since those two regimes killed far more people than Hitler could ever have done?

    What about a Confederate flag mask, is it also a no-no?

  4. Quote: “We strive to provide a safe and comfortable shopping environment for all our customers and will not tolerate any form of discrimination or harassment in any aspect of our business.” Obviously a lie since you discriminated against this couple. Unless either the state’s or the store’s mask policies listed either what was permitted or what was prohibited, the couple was complying with the requirement. They should sue Walmart for its blatant discrimination.

  5. You have got to be kidding! What happened to free speech? It’s okay for the thugs to kill innocent people, BURN the United States of America Flag, destroy stores, restaurants, United States statues ,etc! And no one does anything about that. OH AND KILL INNOCENT MEN WOMEN AND CHILDREN, BUT THAT IS OKAY!! STAND UP AMERICA BEFORE THERE IS NO AMERICA. WHAT A BUNCH OF BULLSHIT!!!!And WE have to wear masks or be arrested!
    BULLSHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. I do not support Nazi’s! However equally offensive to me would be BLM mask or tee shirts. You do not seem to have any issues supporting that.

    Get your priorities sorted out WalMart.

  7. In the first place, BLM is not a terrorist organization. Secondly, wearing a nazi anything has the potential to incite violence. And in the third place, I believe the USASC has ruled that it is not discriminatory for a business to deny services to anyone if it goes against their beliefs, values. Obviously, Walmart has values against glorifying genocide.
