Remember when the world got in an uproar when a couple wouldn’t make a cake for a gay wedding? Well, Walmart just did the same thing towards police.
Walmart employees in McDonough Georgia refuse to decorate a cake featuring the text “Blue Lives Matter”,” because the employees thought the cake was “racist”.
The cake was for an officer who was retiring and the officer’s daughter commissioned the cake.
The un-named police officer’s daughter said, “I didn’t know what to do or say or anything. I was trying not to lose my temper or make a scene. I was so shocked.”
When Walmart was approached with the allegations they said that her most of the woman’s allegations were true.
The employees at the Georgia Walmart were the ones that made the decision to not make the cake. It is not standard policy to deny cakes to police. Walmart made a statement about the incident.
“Our goal is to always take care of customers. But, sometimes we misstep. We’re glad we were able to connect with the family to apologize and make this right.”
The saddest thing about this whole story is that people actually think that a “Blue Lives Matter” cake is racist.
