*The two people that were seen at a Walmart in Marshall, Minn. over the weekend wearing swastika masks as face coverings are banned from visiting any Walmart for one year.
A rep for the company told local NBC station KARE 11 on Saturday that the two customers were issued trespass notices from the local police department over the Saturday incident.
In a viral video that surfaced Saturday and prompted backlash online, a man and woman could be seen wearing the swastikas over their faces while going through the checkout line. The duo could then be seen gesturing at people off-screen that spoke against their choice of mask. The woman then began flipping off customers.
“You’re sick. You have an illness. You can’t be American and wear that mask. You cannot. We literally had a war about this,” a man, identified by the Minnesota Reformer as Benjamin Ruesch, could be heard telling the couple off-camera.
“If you vote for Biden, you’re going to be in Nazi Germany. That’s what it’s going to be like,” the woman wearing the Nazi emblem says back.
Ruesch’s partner, Raphaela Mueller, reportedly captured the moment on video shortly after speaking to a manager at the store about the couple. Mueller, told the outlet her ancestor was a Nazi resister, said she was “crying when I was taking the video.”
