(Mississauga, ON) –Walmart Canada announced this morning that it would no longer stock the American Confederate Flag or items with the flag on it for sale at its stores across the company, citing the tragic events in South Carolina last week.
“Frankly, it came as a bit of a shock to us that were selling that in the first place. A lot of our stuff comes from the US and they just tell us what to sell, we don’t actually look at it. And, well, let’s just say that most of us working at head office can afford to shop elsewhere, eh? But yeah, that was a surprise when we got a message from the US HQ telling us to pull it all.”
“I mean, why would we even have that? Is there seriously a super racist market up here for that kind of shit? Are we just talking about flag boxer shorts? I can’t imagine we have an extensive flag section. Like I say, I don’t go to our stores much. Have you seen that people of Walmart website? That’s why. I’m also going to go ahead and order the stores to pull any Nazi stuff, just in case. I don’t think we do, but apparently we sold fucking confederate flags, so who fucking knows.”
