Many businesses mandate customers to wear face coverings in order to enter their stores. One white couple in Marshall, Minnesota, felt compelled to adhere to that protocol by wearing face coverings emblazoned with Nazi swastikas while casually shopping at a Walmart. As a result, Walmart banned the couple from its store for a year, according to ABC News.
This past Saturday, Facebook user Raphaela Mueller, posted a video showing the customers freely wearing the face coverings at Walmart.
“I was speechless,” Mueller told ABC News of the incident. “I couldn’t believe my eyes. I turned to my partner and said, ‘Wow, did I just see that right?'”
Mueller said she felt the need to say and do something based on her own personal family history.
“My great-grandmother fought in the Underground Resistance against the first wave of Nazis and risked her life for other people,” she said. “I had that underlying knowledge in my head of, ‘Wow, if I don’t say anything now, what did she risk her life for?'”
