Outrage over Nazi image on pillow from Walmart website

By  | 

Walmart is under fire after a California priest finds a symbol of hate on a pillow he purchased from the store's website.
Ryan Newman is a priest at Saint James Episcopal Church in Fresno.
He and his family just moved to the area and were looking for items to decorate their new home.
Newman did a quick search for "Paris-themed" pillows, and a few minutes later he bought this one from "Walmart.com."
When the pillow arrived, Newman noticed an Adolf Hitler postage stamp and a swastika symbol, were featured in the design.
Both he and his wife said they felt violated that the pillow was in their home.
Walmart told Newman that the pillow was listed by a third-party seller, and that it's "in violation" of the store's policy.
In a written statement, Walmart said quote: "we regularly scan our marketplace for these types of items, but unfortunately, the offensive image wasn't visible on the pillow's photo and we were not aware of it until the customer reached out."
Walmart said it removed the item from its online marketplace, and that it's reviewing other items, listed by the seller.
