Y’all gonna try this Juneteenth ice cream?

If you can find some, that is.

Twitter folks are big mad.

Walmart is pulling its ice cream commemorating Juneteenth after criticism and backlash on social media. The ice cream, consisting of a swirl of red velvet and cheesecake flavors, has a label that reads, “Share and celebrate African-American culture, emancipation and enduring hope.” Many on social media have called out Walmart for using Juneteenth as a marketing scheme.


quote:

Juneteenth holiday marks a celebration of freedom and independence,” Walmart said in a statement to FOX Television Stations. “However, we received feedback that a few items caused concern for some of our customers and we sincerely apologize. We are reviewing our assortment and will remove items as appropriate.

Next year:

"Why isn't there any Juneteenth ice cream? REPRESENTATION MATTERS!"

Who designated red velvet and cheesecake as Juneteenth flavors? Why not watermelon and skrawberry?

Liberals desperate to make Juneteenth a thing. Another opportunity to remind black people how oppressed they are.

Lol! Some people are never happy. If this product wasn’t made then they would bitch about lack of representation. National Association of Always Complaining People.

Am I the only one who doesn’t see the significance of those flavors?

I get a paid day off for it, so I'll dance a jive or whatever you are supposed to do to celebrate it.

Easter and Christmas can be marketed outrageously. Nothing is sacred there.

But Juneteenth, now that's a real holiday. We must treat it with reverence
